Kevin T. Kelly graduated from the Art Academy of Cincinnati with a B.F.A. in Sculpture. He later moved to New York City, where he worked as a studio assistant to Tom Wesselmann for six years.

Kelly’s work is decidedly “Neo-Pop” or “Post-Pop”. Infused with a postmodern sensibility, contemporaneous subject matter, and executed in what the artist refers to as a “hyper-chromatic” palette, the paintings are not only redolent of contemporary issues and politics but excel as studies informal definition, composition and colour. Allowing for open-ended lines of query and interpretation without the burdensome weight of didactic pretence, Kelly chooses to establish a dialogue with the viewer vis-à-vis the painted image rather than wag his finger sanctimoniously from an ivory tower like so much “Activist Art” does today. His work has been described as: “Roy Lichtenstein meets Dennis Hopper on Steroids.” It’s a wry, complex admixture of sardonic social commentary, the six o’clock news and the Sunday funnies.

His paintings have appeared on the cover of New American Paintings in 2000 and 2003 and are featured in numerous public and private collections both in the United States and abroad, including Breitling S.A., The Kinsey Institute and Procter and Gamble.

In addition to having taught as an adjunct professor at The Art Academy of Cincinnati and the Baker-Hunt Foundation in Covington, KY, he has also written a critical review for Cincinnati CityBeat, Dialogue magazine, New Art Examiner and the online art journal, AEQAI.
