Lot description
Steve Olson, a pro skateboarder in the 1970s and 80s and a prominent fixture in the California Punk Rock scene has said of his art: "My art gives contemporary art a juvenile-delinquent phase. Its self-made style gleefully trashes conventions of beauty and society while pick-pocketing from the coolest underground styles and beliefs of the previous centuries."

His contemporary works focus on themes of capitalism, social decay, pop culture, and modern banality. Known for rebelling against the system, his work "explores power and the way economic and social forces exert that power by shaping the identities of individuals and culture."
