Steve Joester is a British-born Rock & Roll photographer and mixed media artist, currently living and working in New York City.
Joester was a leading Rock & Roll photographer in the 70's and 80's and his iconic images of the greatest rock performers have appeared on album sleeves, posters, exhibitions and magazines worldwide. Joester made his mark shooting icons such as Mick Jagger, Bob Marley and Sting, and also documented Andy Warhol on film with Rob Halford of Judas Priest backstage at the Palladium in April, 1979.
In an explosive interpretation of the rock icons that left their indelible mark on our generation, Joester's unique mixed media woks transcend his photography. Using an unconventional mixture of materials including oil stick, nail polish, burlap, solder and gold leaf paint on his canvases, Joester invigorates the energy of Rock & Roll in the raw with his own interpretation of the emotion and power of the live performances. Joester was the first mixed media artist to be represented by the Morrison Hotel Gallery, and his work is included in collections internationally.
