A lot has changed for our good friend Ken Keirns over the last year. Since he last showed at our little gallery he's been featured in Hi Fructose magazine, done uncountless numbers of group shows amongst other very high profile artists and up and moved to California to paint full time.

Ken makes his triumphant return (alright, that's a little melodramatic, we know...but we're excited) to Rotofugi in April with his second solo exhibit for us. In our humble opinion painting full time has done nothing but improve what we've always loved about Ken's art. Beautiful, oddly shaped women (and the occasional chimpanzee) juxtaposed against a stream of surreal circumstances and surroundings abound and we wouldn't have it any other way!

Totally forgot it was Today, not like I'll be able to make it, though.

Excellent work, Ken! Love the Ape with the moustashe piece.

I've just browsed through the images in the shop and wow, I am impressed. I would love to see these paintings in MeatSpaceā„¢ once. The mustached ape is my favourite. ^_^
