The John Natsoulas Gallery is pleased to announce the solo exhibition of artist Kevin Snipes. The exhibition will run from May 16th-June 30th. The artist reception will be held May 19th from 7-9:00pm. 

 Kevin Snipes has demonstrated his sculpting prowess for over 30 years, and in this breakthrough exhibition he is also revealing some of his paintings. Snipes work consists of funky figurative imagery, isolating the head as the point of focus. With an extensive education on the history of drawing and sculpting, Snipes integrates styles and sensibilities of great artists who came before him. His work is refined like Jim Nutt while maintaining a loose, relaxed feel like Jean-Michel Basquiat. His early drawing can be likened to that of H.C. Westerman in that they share a wonderful playful sense of humor and narrative.

Kevin Snipes was born in Philadelphia, but grew up mostly in Cleveland, Ohio. He received a B.F.A. in ceramics and drawing from the Cleveland Institute of Art in 1994. After leaving grad school at the University of Florida in 2003 Kevin has led a seemingly nomadic artistic life, constantly making pieces no matter where he is. Kevin has participated in several artist residency programs, including the Clay Studio, in Philadelphia and Watershed Center for Ceramic Arts, in New Castle, Maine and received a Taunt Fellowship from the Archie Bray Foundation in Montana 2008. Exhibiting both nationally and internationally, including a recent solo exhibition at the Society of Arts and Craft, Boston; Akar, Iowa City and Duane Reed Gallery in St. Louis. Kevin has exhibited as far away as Jingdezhen, China. Kevin combines his love of constructing unconventional pottery with an obsessive need to draw on everything that he produces, creating a uniquely dynamic body of work. He currently resides in Chicago, IL.
