Born and raised in Scarborough, Ontario, Steven Ngo is a self taught visual artist whose interests in cultural brand building and illustrations took hold after graduating from Wilfrid Laurier University in 2019 with a degree in Communication Studies. Within the same year, Steven set out to launch his brain child, FAYSOV. A cultural brand expressed through clothing and his artwork, FAYSOV doubles as his alias and company name which has allowed him to produce works for like-minded clients ranging from street wear jewelry brands to musical artists.
FAYSOV is the phonetic spelling of "face off", referring to the multiplicity of personas and "faces" individuals adopt within their day to day lives. FAYSOV was created with the mindset to create forms of unfiltered expressions from the artist, as something beyond the faces we choose in our everyday lives.
