Ben Steele’s Crayons and other MiXeD MeDiA

Ben-Steele-with-source-materials-595x397Ben Steele in Utah Stories
Utah Stories’ February edition includes a feature on Helper artist Ben Steele, an artist with a penchant for crayons.
Why crayons? Steele says, “Crayons represent pure creative potential. I was told to paint what you like, and I have always loved crayons, so I sort of went off in that direction.” Steele has gone off in many directions. In his short career, his style and work have changed dramatically. “I’m kind of a chameleon when it comes to style. I like to change it up and keep it fresh.”
We visited Steele’s studio back in 2007. Check out our photo essay here: http://artistsofutah.org/15bytes/07feb/page2.html
