Steve Mills was born in 1959, in Boston, MA. During his childhood, he chose pencils over crayons to get better detailed drawings. Since then, realism has been his artistic motto.
Although he began selling his drawings at the young age of 11, his career really took off in 1983, when he did his first solo show after graduating in Arts. In that occasion, he sold 33 of the 35 works exhibited, a success that was repeated throughout his life and still lasts.
His photorealistic oil paintings reproduce the depicted objects with an obsessive perfection, taking up to 500 hours of dedication to be concluded.
