Born in San Diego in 1980, like all artists, Kevin was influenced by his surroundings. The intricate finishing of Spanish architecture, lush California agriculture, Saturday morning cartoons coupled with eccentric family members, attention to detail, and a healthy cynical attitude has always fueled his work. Early he amused himself by drawing from situations, positive or negative, to either diffuse or examine. Being naturally curious, and having a thirst for the abnormal, he began to read surrealist literature, and visiting museums. Kevin related to the ideas of revolt through art preached by the surrealists, and understood that most art movements were rebellions and reactions to social, political, and religious ideologies. Along with these ideals, he was very much attracted to the ritualistic, and therapeutic side creating. Since graduating from Laguna College of Art and Design with a BFA in Illustration he has devoted all of his time to oil painting.
