Katarina Hybenova profiles Bushwick-based painter Steven Charles whose work was recently on view in the exhibiiton There Are No Giants Upstairs at Theodore:Art, Brooklyn.

Hybenova writes: "Steven Charles’ soul probably looks something like his art. It’s colorful, lively and giggling at a bunch of insider jokes. If you look closely and patiently you will see hundreds of amazing details and colors. A 'lightness of being,' his colorful schemes that stroke one’s soul, little provocations by orange fur here and there, some tickling glitter – Steven Charles is an analogue child who discovered the 8-bit world of the first PC."
