elfast-born, now London-based, artist Steven Quinn creates epic collages pasted together from cut-outs of old magazines, fanzines, posters and his own photography. The results are devastatingly poignant landscapes and portraits, often with an apocalyptic theme. Steven Quinn plays with imagery in a fresh and unique way, toying with ideas and twisting images from their original context into new and sometimes humorous narratives.
When Steven Quinn describes his work, he says “It’s a big melting pot where everything informs the other; a collage of inspiration, style, backgrounds. Most of my ideas strand from science and to date I think one of the coolest things I have done was to have had my DNA tested and printed as a portrait for The National Portrait Gallery”.
