teve Locatelli is a Belgian contemporary artist known for his brightly coloured pieces often featuring skulls. He is an important figure in the street art world whose art on canvas can be found all over Belgium, including Brussels, Ghent, and Antwerp, as well as abroad, in Amsterdam, Netherlands; and Dortmund, Germany, among others.
“ like the symbolism of skulls. It is so universal, you can not tell if it was a boy or a girl or if it was white, African or Chinese person. We are all the same under it all! It aslo has this subversive meaning that keeps the rebel side of people who can not assume it on an every day basis “
Paintings by Steve Locatelli
Self-taught, Locatelli did his first canvas in 2007. His paintings are characterized with briskly, sometimes very graphical, brush strokes. The artist knows how to find the best combination of colors and to add perfect distorted shadow. Skulls are one of the most recurring motifs in his art, but he also depicts subjects such as girls faces, guns, dogs and bones, among others. Locatelli’s subjects are mainly very bright and colorful, and occasionally with a dark background.
Steve made partnership with many brands such as BMW, Mercedes, Aston Martin, Danone, etc..
Steve Locatelli lives and works in Antwerp, Belgium
