Steven Xue
is a multidisciplinary artist and designer based in Portland, Oregon.

His work stems from his interests in the graphic arts and fine arts, dealing with both graphic representations and perceptual phenomena, and how they constitute our experiences and inform our behaviors.

His seemingly boring and meaningless art practice is, in fact, a close examination of the link between human perception and conception, between the subjectively experienced and the objectively known. He uses the act of pointing as a gesture of art, calling attention to our immediate experiences of color, light, space, and time. More than anything, he wants to put more emphasis and value on the qualitative experiences of any given situation: its physicality, materiality, and opticality. 

Steven is currently completing his BFA degree in Graphic Design at Pacific Northwest College of Art.
