Hello, I’m Steve Socha.
I create art for people who are into viewing familiar things in a new way. I help them find a new perspective on people, places, and objects, by bringing a sense of wonder into their lives. I am an award-winning artist that has exhibited in Toronto, and Brooklyn, and I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
I use an overlay technique to represent a different vantage point on the built environment, one that merges multiple instances of the same object, incorporating the element of time. The images seem to find the average, mean, or essence of the subject, by emphasizing only the repetitive elements. Using more than 30 layers in each image, I aim to capture an icon in the way people's memory works - a collection of various fleeting images recalled as one. The result displays a different way of viewing objects and scenes, one that incorporates the element of time and motion.
I currently have 2 billboard-sized displays of my art at street level in downtown Toronto, done through the PATCH Project (Public Art Through Construction Hoarding).
When I’m not busy creating overlay art, I can be found
- at my full-time day job as an architect at SUSTAINABLE.TO Architecture + Building
- throwing axes at targets every Tuesday night (thanks to BATL – Backyard Axe throwing League)
- playing guitar, ukulele, or whatever else I can get my hands on
- swimming back and forth
If you’re dying to know more, here are 3 things you don’t know about me:
- I was born a David, but then was then switched to a Steve
- I also have a pet portraiture business
- I have a Norwegian Forest Cat named Rodney
