Artist Biography 

Brandon Steen is a contemporary painter born in 1970 and raised in Toronto. Brandon’s contemporary paintings are deeply multi-layered and place focus on the historic qualities of his beloved Toronto. His love affair with the city where he grew up is evident in the striking and realistic compositions. He uses rich colour palettes and a pentimento cast to his underpaintings that peels back the focus to bring a new perspective to some rather old places in the city.

Brandon was educated at both the University of Windsor and George Brown College.
