(b. 1982, USA)
Kyle is perhaps most well-known for his playful typography and often colorful, always minimalist drawings. But his personal work lies in a category all its own. His quiet passion for creating art, both professionally and personally, is inspiring and has put his work in high demand – in Dallas and around the country. Even his Instagram is expertly curated and draws a substantial following, giving fans and friends a glimpse into the preoccupations of this ubiquitous artist.
Kyle and his art move outside the proverbial lines. As the artist states, “I’ve always gravitated toward the mentality of seeing the way things are… but resisting.”
And as an artist, he has earned the freedom to continue to disregard the rules… but with maturity and a purpose. From transforming found objects and memorabilia into original works to using his art to wrestle with and reflect on firmly held beliefs, Kyle Steed’s art is both deeply personal and generally accessible.
“My work is an evolution. An experience more than a static product. It’s a continual process of learning how to welcome constant change. I believe my biggest obstacle has been to overcome the limitations of my own imagination. I enjoy the challenge involved in new ideas and concepts that go against the status quo. In the end, I feel like that saying is true: nothing is ever finished only surrendered.” — Klye Steed, 2018
