Steven J. Levin was trained in Minneapolis in traditional atelier methods similar to those of 19th century Paris. He is associated with the group of artists known as Classical Realists, who trace their artistic lineage back to the Boston School painters working at the turn of the 20th century. Levin's work displays a thorough understanding of light and form, a deep reverence for beauty, and a decided respect for the works of the old masters. Levin cites as his main artistic influences the works of Edward Hopper and Jan Vermeer. Levin's evocative works offer a unique vision to traditional and contemporary themes. His paintings explore a range of subjects, concentrating predominantly on figurative works and still lifes.

Though trained in the Boston School tradition, Levin has undertaken a rather different direction and brought a unique point of view to his work. His rich use of tone and finely honed eye for captivating compositions, have placed him among the vanguard of today's realist painters. Levin has exhibited widely and been featured in prestigious group shows in San Francisco, New York, and Beijing as well as the Oglethorpe Museum in Atlanta, GA and the Arnot Art Museum in New York. He has been featured on the cover of American Artist Magazine and has also been the recipient of numerous awards and prizes in national competitions including the American Society of Portrait Artists, the Allied Artists of America, the Portrait Institute, American Artist Magazine, the Artist's Magazine, the Oil Painters of America and the American Artists Professional League. He is represented by the John Pence Gallery of San Francisco, and Tree's Place Gallery on Cape Cod.
