Steve Palmier Artist
Paintings, Murals, Prints, Posters


Born in New Zealand, brought up in Great Britain, lived in Hong Kong, and is now living in Vancouver, Canada.

He won his first award for a painting of a train at the age of 11 and won a guinea for his efforts. He has had his architectural drawings exhibited at the Royal Scottish Academy and the City Art Centre in Edinburgh, Scotland while his paintings have been exhibited at the City Art Centre in Hong Kong and locally in Vancouver. He studied Chinese painting while living in Hong Kong, and now continues to practice architecture and painting in Canada.

Steve attempts to capture the spirit of living in differing environments. Not only does he paint, but he has also embarked on a series of murals, event posters and street posters to add to his works, and is now keen to develop his three dimensional abilities into his art.

His work is held by many friends from Canada, Great Britain, Hong Kong, the USA, Australia, as well as political dignitaries in Thailand and Malaysia.
