About Kevin

My work is about the varied journeys we take through life. It”s about growing up and living in a world that is broken. These paintings are about trauma, fear and loneliness and the strength that it takes to survive and thrive. They each contain the contrast of the untainted, young and innocent against a backdrop of a worn, ragged, and defiled world. Support versus restraint, bondage versus freedom, and tension versus slack are all themes that I often visit. My work deals with isolation, loneliness and longing teamed with a level of optimistic hope. Issues of race and the division of wealth have arisen in my recent work. This work deals with the idea of rigid boundaries, the hopeful breakdown of such restrictions, as well as questions about the forces that orchestrate our behavior.

"Kevin with every stroke I see an even greater artist appearing. So proud of you! Jana Stiffel"

"Fabulous works"

"He implying that graffiti is only in broken cultures then?"



"@ shannon ?I don?t like being hit over the head with a 2-4.? I Agree, unless that is the point of the actual artwork, to be hit over the head. Michael Mararian's work comes to mind (at least his latest work) which Kevin's sort of reminds me of...both unique takes on portraiture if you ask me."

"Compelling. I absolutely adore the idea of putting children in front of walls of graffiti, I'd love to see an image with my children as the subject---i will definitely keep an eye out for updates on this artist and his work."

"woW!!! it's COOL!!!! I <3 IT!!!!!"

"As a human,a mother,and a grandmother I found your work eye catching, heart warming and heart wrenching. Your feelings were clearly and beautifully apparent."

"As an art dealer I find the work compelling. It is not propaganda. He has his own voice, an incredible sense of color and clearly is a skilled painter - i thought they were photographs at first glance. Congratulations on such beautiful work. I will be googling your name to see more!"
