Pop Artist and creator of pro-Oklahoma campaigns such as I Heart Tulsa, I Speak Okie, and Don't Hate the 918

Steve Cluck is a pop artist and designer based out of Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Cluck's paintings of fashionable females have been shown in over 80 art exhibitions throughout the United States.

In 2005, Cluck started the design team Louis & Cluck (along with fellow Tulsa pop artist Zuri Louis). Louis & Cluck are best known for their clothing line that champions Oklahoma. Cluck's "Don't Hate the 918" slogan has become an official slogan for the Tulsa area. A lifelong Okie, Cluck was inspired to make a clothing line championing Oklahoma because he wanted to proclaim his love for the great state of Oklahoma and leave a positive imprint.

Cluck's clothing line is marked by an emphasis on painting and DIY screen printing. While an art major at the University of Tulsa in 2003, Cluck was introduced to screen printing by visiting artist Lynwood Kreneck (heralded as "The King of Screen Prints" by the Complete Printmaker). Cluck's screen prints on paper have been shown in several fine art exhibitions. Cluck employs that knowledge of screen printing in the creation of his clothing line, approaching it more from a fine art perspective. He individually prints each garment by hand in his Tulsa art studio.

Cluck's T-shirts have been seen in a wide range of media outlets, including People Magazine, The Los Angeles Times, The House of Night book series, VH1, and NBC.

He has been featured in ArtFocus Oklahoma, Oklahoma Magazine, TulsaPeople Magazine, Square Magazine, Tulsa World, Urban Tulsa, and many other publications.

Cluck won the Tulsey Award for "Arts & Entertainment" in 2012 and "Best Young Entrepreneur" in 2008. He's been named a "Mover and Shaker" by Urban Tulsa, a "40 Under 40" by Oklahoma Magazine and a "Top 10 Tulsan" by Tulsa World.

He earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in printmaking at the University of Tulsa in 2005.
