Kevin Cyr was born in Edmundston, NB, Canada in 1976 and grew up in the small paper mill town of Madawaska, Maine. He received his BFA from Massachusetts College of Art in Boston. For the past decade, Kevin’s work has been focused on talking about “place” through vehicles he has encountered on the streets where he’s lived as well as places he has traveled to. While the car remains an iconic status symbol in contemporary culture, he finds beauty and character in old unkempt vehicles, particularly those associated with working-class society. He has created a large body of work focused on panel vans in NYC as well as graffiti covered European trucks. He has also created large scale sculptures inspired by bike and camping culture that explore themes of autonomy, shelter and mobility.
