K. D. TOBIN
Artist, lecturer, instructor & writer
I have been painting for over 35 years. Painting, sculpting, & teaching are my passion. My work has evolved from very large abstract-figurative to smaller, purely abstract pieces. Close examination of a particular piece will reveal texture, hand-prints & even footprints that are part of the process of creation. Buried within many pieces are subtle snippets of newsprint, headlines, & other social commentary that act as time-code elements to root the piece and act as a reference to its place in time.
I am currently represented by Art Dimensions, Los Angeles and Stakenborg-Greenberg Fine Art, Sarasota. Works are also available at Saatchi Art and Museblock.
I find the act of painting akin to breathing, and while I continue to breathe I know I will always have a visceral response to the creative process and be at my happiest.
“K.D.’s artistic talent is comparable to some of the best contemporary art I have seen in the market”.
Author & Advertising Creative Director
“Some of Kevin’s paintings have a whimsical Matisse-like quality; others are like Edvard Munch without the angst! Keep up the good work”
