Steven DaLuz is compelled to do work that conjures up a sense of mystery and ethereal light, whether figurative or not. While identified with works that often refer to landscape—employing a process he devised using metal leaf, oil, and mixed media, he is also known for figurative works that are poetic and introspective. His drawings and paintings often reflect upon the sublime and the expressive beauty of the human figure.

The City of San Antonio selected DaLuz’s painting, “Dance of Fiesta” for its official Fiesta Poster for 2007. He was selected for acceptance into both the 2009 and 2011 Biennales in Florence, Italy, and his works have been published in art periodicals, such as Art in America, American Art Collector, Fine Art Connoisseur, The Artists, Professional Artist, The Huffington Post, and Poets and Artists magazine, where he received the cover for the Nov 2009 Issue. Two of his works were selected for publication in the book, Strokes of Genius 3: The Best of Drawing, released in 2011.  His self-portraits were accepted into the 2011 and 2012 National Self-Portrait Exhibitions at 33 Contemporary Gallery in Chicago, IL.
