Steve Khan’s Work

Steve Khan’s Work

Steve Khan

Toronto, Canada


Steve Khan enjoys using humour to provide an entry point to topics people normally don’t want to discuss. He wants you to feel less uncomfortable about sexuality, race and gender. He acknowledges this tends to reposition those with privilege to experience what it’s like to be without it. He works with text, drawing and video.
