From paintings and photographs of eroticized female subjects, to bold mixed-media collages featuring LED lights, to large commercial murals, Keanen Kasten creates works with a glamour-meets-street aesthetic and an affinity for conscious viewing. The self taught artist brings an enlivening perspective towards what it means to create. Kasten views himself as the vessel of the work, with the harmonious bond between the subject and the artist co-creating together. The artist sees his practice, in which he transforms humble materials into powerful artworks, as a parallel of his life’s transformation.
