Artists I have recently discovered: Steven Levin

Steven Levin was a featured artist in the June issue of Artist's Magazine.
I love the clever use of a museum as an interior-a piece of art about the space that hold pieces of art.

I also like that the figures in his work feel more like pawns or props that are meant to symbolize an idea or act instead of a specific identity.(like below, in Coming and Going)

The sense of light and the overall use of painting media is impressive, but the thing I like most about his work is the sense of narrative or theme.
The use of temperature, saturation and value are so strong in the themed still life, Oil and Gas.
