Plethora of Plumbing, Cockatoo Is, Sydney (diptych) by Steve Jannar
Sydney Milieu is an exotic name for Sydney and its surrounds. It is an artist's impression of Sydney Harbour, The Royal National Park and Blue Mountains - a smorgasbord of beauty and a delight for an artist to work with.
Steve Jannar is a Sydney-based artist. Being an architect had contributed to the fact that many of his earlier works included the built environment in the Australian vernacular. Since 2008 he has returned to painting in acrylic paint rather than oil, is painting on a larger scale and freeing up his style - resulting in more dramatic works with greater impact.
Most of his paintings in recent years have been 'waterscapes' - finding the element of water to be a visual magnet that most people are drawn to as a preferred object of view. Having 'water' as a common theme in his paintings makes Sydney a wonderful base from which to work; especially with a focus on Sydney Harbour, the Hawkesbury & Nepean Rivers, Port Hacking and the Royal National Park.
He has exhibited in and around Sydney for many years and is also represented in overseas collections. He is a member of Mosman, Bankstown, Liverpool, Oatley 101 & Southern Cross Art Societies and is a committee member of Mosman Art Society. He has undertaken demostrations in and around Sydney.
