An Australian creative powerhouse, Steve Gorrow is one of the masterminds behind some of the best and most revered campaigns the industry has seen. Gorrow’s style, coined ‘Garage Art’, is intrinsically linked to popular culture and is infused with street art motifs. He has a unique sensibility, simultaneously blending playful, pop iconography with a darker socio-political undercurrent and able to elevate the status of ad campaigns to cultural commentaries and collectible artworks.
Drawing attention to social inequities, commercial pressures and the myth of the artist in the contemporary world, iconic artists like Jean Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, Kozik, Roy Lichtenstein and Raymond Pettibon inspire and lay testament to Gorrow’s style. His imagery navigates the world of fine art, fashion, music, pop, graphic novels, surfing, cinema, political propaganda, cyberspace and celebrity culture and does so with a self conscious revelry which is hard to resist.
