Walrus TV Artist Feature: Dave Kinsey Interview from “Dithers”Juxtapoz // Tuesday, 04 Aug 2009
“I try to do something that could potentially make people think a little bit more, at least about themselves or their perception on the world or their surroundings or what they’re doing. Hopefully people will open up a little more.”
About Dave Kinsey:
Not one for the nine to five grind, Kinsey started the creative design studio BLK/MRKT after moving to the west coast following his education at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and the Art Institute of Atlanta. Its success has allowed him to pursue his path as an accomplished designer and fine artist. His work captures the universal essence of the human condition mainly through an energetic portrayal of urban characters. Working spontaneously, and utilizing a range of mediums, he constructs multi-layered, textured environments easily likened to the complexities of contemporary urban life. The style and substance of his body of work originates in street art, and in keeping with his goal “to expose as many people to art as possible and to honor the power art has when it’s created and accepted,” Kinsey founded the BLK/MRKT Gallery, allowing him to provide a crossroads for a new movement of young and electrifying iconoclasts.
