Steve Olson creates art that exposes the human condition; his pieces inevitably tugging at your heartstrings and making you think about the struggles of others, and perhaps even yourself, in the process. 
 
As the son of a social worker, his work explores the realms of social justice issues ranging from homelessness, gun violence, depression, illness, and so on. His works of art expresses life in it’s rawest and perhaps, darkest forms. Unlike today, with our social media outlets, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter… where we arguably emphasize to an almost excessive and fabricated level of perfection and happiness-Steve Olson focuses on the moments of despair, and brings exposer to the very topics that people, for whatever reason, at times choose to ignore. As a Minneapolis Artist, his art, ranging from wood carvings, paintings, to sculptures, is displayed in “mayor’s offices, the State Capitol and local public schools, and has even teamed up with the Family Housing Fund”.
