Steve deBruyn is an artist living and working in London, Ontario, Canada. His main artistic output consists of large-scale installation art. Usually his work is focused around the culture and esthetics of skateboarding. As a 30-something Canadian, he takes into account his rural upbringing and lack of actual skill on the board itself. He also enjoys the traditional skater ethos of building things for free from whatever is available. He has also been known to create book works, paintings, collages and zines. He frequently collaborates with others. He prefers to exhibit in artist run centers and institutional galleries. He is currently working on a series of solo shows across Canada.
