Steve Huston was born and grew up in Alaska. He studied at Pasadena's Art Center College of Design, while working construction each summer to pay his tuition. Even before graduating with his BFA, Huston began illustrating. His client list eventually included such names as Caesar's Palace, MGM, Paramount Pictures and Universal Studios.
After nearly a decade of doing commercial work, Huston decided a change was in order. He began teaching drawing, painting and composition- first at his Alma Mater, then at the Disney, Warner Brother, and Dreamworks Studios. This allowed him the privilege of passing on the knowledge he had been given, while further honing his craft and seeking out new influences for the career he now envisioned.
Such influences came to include Titian and Rembrandt, the early American Tonalists, the homespun character of the WPA art projects, and the heroic and graphic inventions of the American Comic Book form.
1995 began his career as a fine artist, winning top prizes at the California Art Club Gold Medal Show that year and the following. A string of gallery shows followed, first in Los Angeles and then in New York and in Europe. Huston continues to lecture around the country and exhibits his work widely.

Founding member and original Head East drummer Steve Huston has announced that he has retired from his full time Associate Professor position at the Art Institute of Houston. Steve was advanced from "Instructor" to the level of "Associate Professor" after earning 2 Masters Degrees, one from the University of London in 2000 and one from Goddard College in Vermont in 2004. He has served on the college Steering Committee, has been the school's recording studio manager of a 2 million dollar state-of-the-art recording facility, and on several occasions has been the advocate for student Audio majors groups.
Steve has also been voted "Instructor of the Quarter" 5 times by the student body, competing for this honor with more than 150 other Faculty members. He has often had graduates of the school visit his class as guest speakers so his students can hear from "their own kind" who have become successful after completing their degree. Steve says that he has completely enjoyed the last 21 years and looks back with joy and satisfaction. He is leaving the full time position in good hands, as they have a great staff. But Steve won't be gone for long, after a few months off he plans to return to a part-time position teaching the fundamentals of the music business as both a science and a craft.

Steve Huston Steve Huston was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska. He moved to California at the age of 20 to earn his BFA degree from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena where he later taught for many years.
Huston's artistic vision transitions from depicting isolated figures to representing multiple figures celebrating the motion of common day laborers. Huston takes the viewer on a nostalgic journey into the history of the American work ethic commemorating its continuation into our post-industrial society. Huston stylistically paints muscular men who sacrifice their bodies for their accomplishments, yet he elevates their status with a valiant quality. Often depicting boxers or construction workers, he approaches these subjects with the same veneration old masters approached Baroque religious paintings. There is a strong sense of light cast among the figures as though they are being illuminated by a central source. The technique in which he paints the figures creates as sense of movement and energy; even though the image is pictorial it is never stagnant. Huston recognizes the beauty and honors the dignity and heroism of hard working individuals and the American battle of man versus machine. The uniting force of humanity is the everyday struggle that we all endure; Huston honors these qualities with his emphasis on action, describing the structures of the human body with a combination of charm, accuracy and rippling lines of musculature.
Huston's work has been acquired by public and private collections including Caesar's Palace, Columbia Pictures, The Pacific Club and Universal Pictures. Huston's profession as a fine artist started thriving in 1995, winning honorable awards at the California Art Club Gold Medal Show. Then came a chain of gallery exhibitions, first in Los Angeles and then New York and Europe. Huston continues to show his work broadly giving lectures across the country.

Whether in the profile of a toiling worker or in the stance of a parrying pugilist, Mr. Huston sees heroism in the sacrifice of the body for the completion of a daunting task.Yet, like most great artists, it is in the faces of his men and their underlying emotions that he is able to convey a deeper and more spiritual element-one which transcends the already intense impact of this paintings.
In this brilliant composition, Steve Huston elevates a commonplace scene to one of allegorical proportions, heightening our awareness of an everyday drama we so often overlook.
