Vicky Steckel’s New Works

Born in Dominican Republic, Vicky Steckel is a multi-disciplinary self taught artist. She
started her art career as a makeup artist learning and collaborating with top icons in
the fashion industry.


Steckel’s transition to painting was initiated by her need to create, she began staging her photography with hand painted backdrops, furniture, and other props. The models were also fully painted and their palette transitioned as if they were a living color gradient.


These shoots, as they were documented, became a performance channel that served as a study for Steckel’s oeuvre. Steckel has continued to paint experimenting with surfaces including found objects, bubble wrap, and clothing. The artist is represented by Trotta-Bono Contemporary and her work has been shown in several international art fairs. Steckel lives and works in New York.
