STEVE KAUFMAN 1960-2010

Born in 1960 – California Artist Steve Kaufman opened his Los Angeles art studio, The Art Studio, in August 2000 to herald in a vibrant new era of art and social progress for the 21st century. As Andy Warhol’s legman and creative assistant for nearly 10 years, and the only painter ever to be awarded commissions by BOTH the Van Gogh and Picasso estates, Steve Kaufman specializes in the here and now, capturing the excitement and cultural ebb and flow of his generation. Not only the hub of the Pop Art world, ‘The Art Studio’ is now the hub gathering for the icons and social visionaries of future generations. Steve Kaufman supported many local charities for endangered youth, especially “Give Kids a Break”. Steve Kaufman passed away in 2010. His legacy lives on.
