My art is captivating; full of exclusive, distinctive symbols of my personal and most intimate thoughts on the issues and enjoyments life has on the world and my personal life. I’ve been inspired mostly by Basquiat, Keith Haring, Neckface, Warhol, and Picasso for their astounding design of abstract art. I am always envisioning new zestful, vibrant ideas and eager to apply those concepts to a canvas.
When I paint or draw, I use a contemporary abstract style to mesmerize and fascinate. I only use the best paint, Old Holland, and premium supplies to show my dedication to my craftsmanship.
My work thus far has been displayed in galleries such as Daniels Center for the Arts, Multiple Forest Hill Facility Exhibitions and local events. I also have a proven background to support my success. I strive to be acknowledged as a Master artisan.
Hello, my name is Kevin Klix and I’m 19 years of age. I’ve been doing Art well over 14 years now. It all started at the age of 5. I can vividly remember waking up early in the morning at 6 a.m. I would wake up that early to just to learn watercolor and landscape painting on the television by Bob Ross. I’ve always been so fascinated and intrigued with making pictures ever since then, and creating things that are beautiful and interesting.
As I got more into elementary school, I began to gain recognition for my Art and I won 2nd place in ArtiGras in the adult division at 9 years old. I eventually got accepted into Bak School for the Arts during middle school. From there I went through a phase of depression because I didn’t like the atmosphere that the art class created. I felt out of place; I couldn’t establish a foundation around the students and teachers. Unnecessary competition and art was constantly being shoved down my throat. It was no longer fun to do art anymore.
During my days in high school, I decided I didn’t want to further continue advanced art classes at Dreyfoos High School of the arts, because I was worn out from the tedious work given so I made a move to a public school where I ended up doing unusual cartooning from time to time. I then decided to pick an art extracurricular course for credits and was placed in Art/Drawing 1. Two weeks in, my art teacher in that class said concluded that I was no longer able to attend her class because:
“It is unhealthy competition for the other students.”
From there, I was placed in AP Art where I was preparing myself for the art exam. I ended up scoring flawlessly and rediscovered my true passion in life. I was now awakened from the dreadful spell that was casted upon my dark adolescent soul as a depressed teenager; the clouds were beginning to clear in the sunshine state.
I’ve currently made Art a big part of my life, and it helps me cope with my social struggles in my life. I hope to become a revolutionist with my Art, and become one of the masters. I’m experimenting with everything in Art in order to become an original craftsman — to create my own style of art. I hope to master techniques such as cubism, pop art, expressionism, and etc. In time, my Art will inspire and become revolutionary; but as of now, I want people to enjoy the art I make for the time being. Until of course, I eventually make my own so called “ism” in the Art world.
