Steven Kostell (b. Gary, IN) is an intermedia artist & designer whose work explores the convergence of traditional and experimental techniques in print and digital media, resulting in hybrid forms. His work is grounded in material-based production and image processing, involving papermaking, printmaking, artist books, and multi-channel audio/video installations.
His research areas focus on environmental issues, the relationship between urban/rural morphology and constructs of social vernacular. Additional interests focus on digital visualization, design thinking, cultural entrepreneurship and creative communities.
Kostell's work has been exhibited nationally and internationally at such venues as the Center for Book and Paper at Columbia College, Chicago; the Qijiang International Printmaking Festival, Chongqing, China; Ozu Washi Gallery and the Oji Paper Museum, Tokyo, Japan; New Forms Festival, Vancouver, BC and the Laura Haber Gallery, Buenos Aires, Argentina.
