Steve Farr, Chicago Member Since July 2009 Artist Statement Hello, My name is Steve Farr and I am for the most part a self taught artist from Chicago. I have been drawing and painting since the age of five, so my passion for art seems to come just naturally. I like to think that my influences come from a vivid imagination, childhood memories and life experiences. As for my style, well I've never really liked "labels" because I feel they create boundaries, which may limit one’s progression as an artist. I think my ever-changing styles lend to my uniqueness as an artist. One week, I'm a landscape artist, the next I'm dabbling in painting abstracts, the next I'm immersed in surrealism. So, if nothing else, it keeps me from getting bored. I'm going to always try to "push the envelope". Often I'll start a painting, never having a clue to where it will end up, but that's what makes drawing and painting a thrill for me. A blank canvas is a beautiful thing because the possibilities are endless.
