Born and raised in New
York City, Steve Nunez has become a rising talent
in the custom paint scene. Steve has a unique self-taught photo-realistic
that has earned him many show-awards, trophies, plaques and magazine reviews.
He uses very little masking
tape and prefers free-hand airbrushing-even the
smallest of details. He credits his free-hand technique to his early-years of

french curves and Iwata airbrushes with industrial compressors.

take under 3-weeks to complete from start to
finish with many taking literally less than 10-12 days to turn-around! He
