About Kevin OBrien

Kevin OBrien I will have 2 pieces exhibited at ArtExpo NYC Nov. 19 - 21, 2021 - Please Visit!

If you select "View All" on this Web site and scroll from top to bottom you should see my work blending trends together such as surreo-expressionism, street art re-relocated from a strret wall to the background of the painting, pop art such that they incorporate imagery from current culture, industrial-influenced so that they have industrial materials contrasting with art supplies, children's art which conflicts with attempts to develop aesthetically-complex arrangements, etc., etc.

I received a BFA in Painting, amongst other degrees.
I studied with John Grillo, a well-known artist, who himself was a student of Hans Hoffman.

I also studied with Leonel Gongora, who provided a Latin point of view to painting. He also influenced my work, and encouraged me in a number of ways.

I have had many exhibits in the USA, Europe and Asia.

I am working with a European gallery too, from Vienna.

I am in many artists associations, like FPAC in Boston. I just recently had pieces on exhibit with them at their galleries in Boston, MA.

I have done many installations. I have also done many Street Art-influenced works. So some of my more current works may look like a Street-version of an installation!

I have also been influenced by primitive cultures, as well as the art of young children.
I am a form of Street-surreo-expressioinst, pop, comic painter.
I would say that my motivation is more related to those of early primitive painters from the Aurignacian culture:

Much more so than from the works of some contemporary schools of art, who don't seem to be quite as authentic.

Many of my themes are related to primitive life or to environmental issues. For example, my work Ice Shield - 1979, was a spiritual item meant to protect the ice of our Earth's poles.
