With roots in working-class Ohio, Kenneth Burris is a distinctive artist whose unusual training came from years of working in the now defunct industry of roadside billboard painting.  Kenneth Burris’ new series takes a colorful and vibrant view on the potential destruction and carnage of the future.

Through the appropriation of new technologies, Kenneth Burris creates a virtual landscape of imagination, and each piece is a window into that world.

By pairing stimulating colors with his passionate environmental message, he has managed to form a reality that assaults the senses, and aggressively begs the question of our accountability regarding the future of the planet.

There is a savage, unforgiving truth conveyed through his graphic paintings, and every detail moves to overwhelm the mind with color and dread. By combining modern innovations with traditional practices Kenneth has managed to optimize and distill his message through the canvas, and the result is something that would inspire both Cronenberg and Lovecraft.
There will be a series of drawings and paintings available for sale, and additional watercolor booklets for purchase.

 ABOUT Superfine Hyper-Curated Contemporary Art Fair:
Superfine! was created by an artist and an entrepreneur in 2015 as a reaction to what we saw in the art market — inflated prices, sluggish sales, and a widening valley between an ever-growing art-appreciating public and an insular art world positioned far outside of their price range and comfort zone.

Through a two year mission to bring joy and excitement back to the art of collecting art, we’ve achieved a balance that enables exhibitors to experience brisk sales while affording collectors at all stages and levels the ability to take home work that they love, within their budget. In the process, our core team have become avid art collectors – living by the maxim of supporting both living, working artists, and those who champion them. With the support of our devoted exhibitors, collectors, and progressive journalists, we’ve created not just another art fair, but a brand new art market whose success rests on the shoulders of not just a select few, but all who take pleasure in supporting talented, passionate artists.
