Citizen Shay is Steve Shay, a self identified citizen of the World. Steve has no formal training but is trained as a graphic designer with a focus on information design. He believes that information can become art, tell a story, and create emotion. This belief led Steve to start experimenting with his own mixed-media “art” in 2005. Today, he is constantly experimenting with various techniques, creating small pieces of work using various media such as paint, pen, paper, gels, photography, wood, and epherema. It’s all an attempt to create pieces that tell short stories while being visually stimulating.
