Artist Spotlight: Dave Kinsey

Source: http://www.kinseyvisual.com

KinseyVisual.com says: Dave Kinsey was born in Pittsburgh in 1971 and attended the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and the Art Institute of Atlanta before moving to California in 1994 to pursue a career as a designer and fine artist. His work captures the universal essence of the human condition mainly through an energetic portrayal of urban figures. Working spontaneously, and utilizing a range of mediums, he constructs multi-layered, textured environments easily likened to the complexities of contemporary life. His images depict beings who are both triumphant in their defiant stance to their surroundings, and tragic, as they transmit a visual display of raw emotion and jangled nerves. Kinsey founded BLK/MRKT Gallery in 2001, allowing him to provide a crossroads for a new movement of emerging and electrifying iconoclasts. In addition to these pursuits his fine art has been shown in galleries and museums worldwide, among these a recent exhibition at the URBIS Museum in Manchester and Art Brussels in Belgium. He has also been featured in such publications as The New York Times, Black Book and BLK/MRKT One and Two, and invited to speak at numerous institutions such as The Art Center, UCLA, Montserrat College of Art and most recently, the Semi-Permanent conference in Sydney, Australia.

I say: I’ve been a huge fan of Dave Kinsey since he was bombing walls in San Diego under the tag “büst.” I’m really excited to see the evolution of his art over the years. His fine art is very impressive. Please take a look at his website.
