Born in Kiev, Ukraine, on March 19, 1967, Alexey Steele began his art training at an early age in the studio of his father, renowned Russian artist Leonid Steele. He furthered his professional education at the prestigious Surikov Art Institute of the Soviet Academy of Arts in Moscow, studying under internationally acclaimed artist Illia Glazunov. In 1990, Steele moved to Los Angeles where he still resides as he paints large-scaled figurative murals, commissioned portraits, and California plein air landscapes inspired by the classical color palette of the Moscow School.

Two of Steele’s unique grand-scaled mural commissions include The Circle, figurative composition with a diameter of 31 feet, and the slightly smaller allegorical work, The Soul of the Hero. Among Steele’s numerous exhibitions are two that were held at the Fleischer Museum of Art in Scottsdale, Arizona, titled Russian Treasures and Two Generations of Artists: Leonid and Alexey Steele.  A Solo exhibition of Steele’s work was shown in 2005 at the Carnegie Art Museum, Oxnard, California; titled Outside Constraints.  In addition, his work has been featured in exhibitions at the Bowers Museum of Cultural Art, Santa Ana, California; Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, Los Angeles; Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art at Pepperdine University, Malibu, California; Pasadena Historical Museum, Pasadena, California; Pasadena Museum of California Art, Pasadena, California; Phippen Museum, Prescott, Arizona; University of Arkansas Fine Arts Center in Fayetteville, Arkansas; and the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, Los Angeles.

Steele is a Signature Member of the California Art Club and was the recipient of the Silver Medal for the 1994 California Discovery Award. In 1996, he co-founded the Annual Russian Heritage Festival, which continued to be presented at the historic Mission San Juan Capistrano in Southern California until 2005.
