Brad Kenny

Born in Epsom, Surrey, UK. 1992.

International contemporary artist, Brad Kenny (Artcan Member) studied and achieved MA & BA (Hons) Degree in Fine Art from the University of Chichester. 

Brad is attracted to Expressionist characteristics of strong colours, abstraction/distortion and individual experiences, exploring emotions, identity, character and narrative through portraiture.

Being a dyslexic artist, Brad sees painting as a language, that is not easily written or expressed; it is a way of communication and interpretation.

Brad currently has works in the United Kingdom, United States, Hong Kong, Australia, Switzerland, Germany, Spain, Dubai and Russia. 

Brad's style, technique and subjects continues to develop; the abstract element of his paintings, allows him a form of expression which focuses on the human condition for the contemporary age.
