Steven Bankhead teaches at Otis College of Art and Design, Compton College and Fullerton College. When he isn’t teaching he is probably making art or barbequing. Originally from Alabama, one of his first jobs was at a BBQ restaurant – hence his obsession with meat. As part of his practice, Bankhead regularly organizes large BBQs and desert music/art events, like Burrito Deluxe. His painting process has included printing, or stamping, items like plucked chicken bodies and wildflowers, as well as air brushing and stenciling “broken” window cracks.
