About

Steven Avrenli

Steven began his adventure into the art world searching the internet high and low for guides, videos, and advice from established artists. During the summer of 2017, he was inspired to try digital drawing using an old laptop with a digitizer screen and a copy of photoshop. Unsatisfied with his progress, Steven transitioned to following Bob Ross videos with real Oil paints in Fall of 2019. By the time the summer of 2020 rolled around and the sheer boredom of being cooped up in the house during a pandemic, he applied to the Studio Arts program at Syracuse University.

Current painting style interests include: En Plein Air style Impressionism, Surrealism, and Sci-fi themes.
