Telephone: 574.289.1066 About Steve Sult Sult lives and creates his art in Southwestern Michigan from his studio in Niles, Michigan. Steve opened his doors as Sult Mine Creative Group and built a practice gaining a national and international reputation as a creative director, art director, and illustrating designer, developing new product introduction – successfully contributing to over seventy established and emerging client organizations in diverse industries in the US, South America, South America, China, and Europe. Today, Steve has refined this style created early in his career. His work combines elements of WPA's poster campaigns in the 1930s, pop art, Russian Constructivists art, and decorative art all being applied to poster art. It's like sitting on the fence of graphic design and illustration, blurring the boundary between traditional and commercial art through type and image via prints, notecards, apparel, and posters in public spaces.
