Biography Steven Derks
Steven Derks' art career began in the late 1980s while vacationing in Mexico. Seeking to help a remote Tarahumara tribal cooperative sell their drums in the United States he began decorating the drums with abstract patterns inspired by cultures of the southwestern United States.
Finding initial success with the drum sales, Derks attempted to build display stands for the drums. Thus began his sculpture career. Derks now creates abstract sculptures using materials he collects from local junk yards in his home town of Tucson, Arizona.
