Space Shuttle over Harlem Oil Painting by New York Artist Clintel Steed, 2012

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


"I did a series of these paintings. I actually saw the NASA shuttle flying on top of a 747 over Harlem and it was an amazing moment to see such a feat. And I just had to paint about this historical moment - a pretty cool moment and something that i had to turn into a painting!! And this was the last painting of the series. I still have that energy in me to respond to the moment, that moment of life." - Clintel Steed

About the artist:
“My painting is about the explosion of an image and the impact that it makes.” Clintel Steed, an American artist, holds a BFA in Painting from the Art Institute of Chicago, an MFA from Indiana University and completed Advanced Studies at the New York Studio School of Drawing, Painting and Sculpture. Born in 1977 and raised in a devoutly Pentecostal Chrisitan household in Utah, Clintel drove to New York City in 2001 with his easel tied to the top of his car and settled in Harlem. Finding representation with Borghi Gallery, exhibitions throughout New York City, the Hamptons, Philadelphia and winning the John Koch award from the Academy of Arts and Letters in 2015, Clintel is an artist who represents the urgency and grit that was synonymous with New York City in the 1970s and 1980s. “The battle between good and evil, heaven and hell was preached all the time. This struggle is still within me, the lust for money and the battle for power.” Clintel’s studio is in the Sunset Park area of Brooklyn, one of the last vestiges of unadulterated New York art studio space.
