ARNOLD STEINER Born in Venezuela and raised in Miami, Arnold Steiner has been involved in Fine Art and Design for most of his life. After graduating from High School, Arnold studied for 3 years at the School of Visual Arts in New York. For the next 10 years, Arnold worked in New York as a freelance Graphic designer and continues to work in this field today. Examples of his work can be found in everything from film posters, album covers, clothing designs to advertisement and packaging design. Arnold’s work has been featured in several contemporary graphic design books and other publications including Time Out, Trace, Surface, Translucent (Japan), Sampler2, and Repellent. After 15 years of making his mark in the print digital medium, Arnold took a leap into digital video, collaborating with Phoenix and Brian in creating “Drawdown” in 2004. Arnold is also active in the contemporary ‘Electro’ music scene; in 2005 Arnold started his own record label “Transient Force” and has published over 10 albums in the past 7 years. While still maintaining his graphic design integrity and music production, Arnold continued pursuing Fine Art. In 2007 he created a 5,000 square foot Multimedia Art exhibition “Submecha” featuring Fine Art, Digital art and Video. In 2008 Arnold was Nominated “Best Local Album Cover Artist” By the “Miami New Times”. In 2010 Arnold was awarded 1st place in the Sci-Fi London film festival poster contest “Life In 2050″. Arnold is a multi talented artist with both visual and musical expression. Arnold always had a passion for the basic colors and tones that can be used to generate the entire color spectrum, but it was the discovery of Mondrian’s work that led him to believe he had found the colour set he would fall in love with; there was something about using these colours (Red, Yellow, Blue, Black and White) that gave him a sense of completion. Soon after this discovery he began to experiment with different styles such as Suprematism, Comparison Art, Possibility Art, Minimalism and Op Art. It was the discovery of Bridget Riley’s ‘striped’ pieces that was the next defining moment in his artistic career. Arnold started an ongoing study of how these basic colours appear within a different composition of stripes and the effect that the stripes created. Working exclusively with vertical stripes, each painting has a focus on balance no matter what the nature of the composition. “I chose to name each piece as “Untitled” so the viewer is not distracted by a particular idea. The paining is created more for the viewer to self-reflect on how they feel about it rather than it being a form of self expression."
