Artist Steve Montiglio describes his work as "conceptual realism."
Having flunked Art Appreciation 101, we have no idea what
that means, but any guy whose paintings are in the collections
of Sylvester Stallone, Juliette Lewis, Clive Barker and B-movie
scream queen Julie Strain must be doing something right...

(from an article about Juliette Lewis)
…a sense of the provocative emanates from a canvas of
entangled nudes by contemporary painter Steve Montiglio.
"When I saw it, I felt that warm, yearning feeling.
The bodies…," she says, breaking into a giggle.
"Here's the debate: in love or lust?"

Story and art by Steve Montiglio
 

 

RAGE MAGAZINE · "The Buzz" · April '97
If by any chance these cool paintings are giving you
deja vu,we wouldn't be surprised. Steve Montiglio's
paintings have set the mood in scenes from
Hellraiser III, Lord Of Illusions, The Big Squeeze and
Buffy the Vampire Slayer - the TV series.
And if you've ever hung out at either Clive Barker or
Sly Stallone's pad, you saw their Montiglio originals.
His work can also be seen in Hustler comix (issue No. 1)
and next month's Rage. Montiglio's an oil on canvas;
aluminum; masonite kind of guy and one of those"rare"
New Yorkers who now resides in Los Angeles.

· by Michele Larue:
L' art erotique dans galerie de Beverly Hills repond a une
demande de ma clientele depuis trois ans,
dit Cherisse. Mon melleur client m'ayant deja pris
plus de cinquante tableaux du genre, j'ai donc
coordonne une exposition, consacree a l'erotisme,
"Nude and Erotic Show,"…Steve Montiglio, 33 ans,
privilegie le theme de l'auto consommation,
de la masturbation et de la fusion des sexes,
sur d'immenses toiles ou le rouge et le violet,
couleurs symboliques de l'erotisme, sont tres presents.
Steve Montiglio est l'un des peintres favoris de
Sylvester Stallone. On me demande souvent des tableax
representant des gens de couleur, puisque je suis
moimeme noire, mais je n'ai trouve aucun artiste
californien qui ait ose representer des femmes noires.

...Montiglio's striking imagistic sense infuses
a unique style of realism with conceptual potency.
