Spazuk, Steven

Steven Spazuk has explored the vastness of visual arts through painting, publicity, graphic design and set design. He founded the Tam-Tam advertising agency back in 1987, with three associates: their team succeeded in shaking the tree of conventional marketing strategies. The appeal of graphic design became stronger in 1992. This medium eventually pulls the artist further toward the world of painting, and away from the immediacy and pressure of the advertising world. Spazuk seeks depth… He soon thereafter founds the Tarzan Communication Graphique agency. He is called upon to create a personalised stamp for Canada Post.

Since 1994, Steven Spazuk paints, cuts, models, layers, upturns every stone. His imagination sometimes soars above his workshop and onto the streets, bringing new volumes, colours and shapes to various urban happenings, such as Christmas and Halloween parades. He has contributed his keen eye and unique aesthetics to the set design of such renowned visual, dance and stage artists as Victor Pilon and Michel Lemieux.
