CitizenShay is Steve Shay, a self-taught artist of sorts.  While he has no formal art training, Steve has studied and works at a graphic designer with a focus on information and interaction 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 pieces in 2004.

The first pieces Steve created were small collages and some pieces made to look like Chicago CTA “L” Subway station signs. It’s the CTA station sign artwork that first got Steve some recognition by galleries and the press alike.  The “L” station signs have been featured in various digital and print publications such as Daily Candy, Etsy, ArtSlant.com, theFancy.com, Gapersblock.com, NewCity, VenusZine, Not For Tourists, Chicago Tribune, The Reader, and RedEye. Not bad for a kid from Merrillville, IN.

Today, Steve is constantly experimenting and learning various techniques, creating pieces of work using a variety of mediums like acrylic paint, pen, paper, wood, photography and all sorts of vintage ephemera. His goal is to create pieces that tell short stories while visually stimulating the viewer. Oh, and do it at a price that’s affordable.
