Steve Einhorn's Profile

About

Welcome to Steve Einhorn's art room.

An eclectic artist, Steve's fascination with music, art, and the relationship between instruments, bicycles and people started with his first chords on guitar at thirteen in NYC. The slice-of-life incarnations of Steve's drawings are populated by a folk orchestral cast of characters, both unique and familiar, funny and odd - as in the uke-playing frog or the motorcar made of instruments of every shape, color and size.

Steve Einhorn was mentored by great artists in the sixties and seventies, including painter, Benny Andrews at the New School in NYC; and at Carnegie Mellon University, sculptor Chuck Waldek, painter, Walter Groer and Bernie Sachs, illustration and drawing master fostered Steve's irrepressible relationship with art.

Welcome to Steve Einhorn's art room.

An eclectic artist, Steve's fascination with music, art, and the relationship between instruments, bicycles and people started with his first chords on guitar at thirteen in NYC.

Steve Einhorn was mentored by great artists in the sixties and seventies, including painter, Benny Andrews at the New School in NYC; and at Carnegie Mellon University, sculptor Chuck Waldek, painter, Walter Groer and Bernie Sachs, illustration and drawing master fostered Steve's irrepressible relationship with art. Pen, paper, brush, or just about anything that finds its way onto the knolling table won't be left long before it becomes part of an fundamentally expressive - and most often playable - piece. Steve's art can be found on ukulele tops, ads, books and tattoos. Steve Einhorn creations are always original.

Steve owned Artichoke Music in Portland, Oregon until 2007 and during that time, saved parts and pieces of trashed instruments. The alchemy of random pieces grew into playable music sculptures...an anchovy can ukulele, an upright bass made from an old guitar and a wine crate and weedwacker strings...and transformed from parts into an original whole and a new state of being at play.

Steve Einhorn's scultpures were featured in the inaugural exhibit of the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art (2013) and his Pontiac Hubcap Guitar is currently part of the Landfill Art permanent collection on exhibit at the Shenandoah Valley Museum of Folk Art and the traveling show (2014-2015).
