Meet Kevin Snipes

“When in Rome” was the title of the exhibition of one of our first artists in residence, Kevin Snipes AIR 2013. He was influenced by the Attic vases in the Vatican Museums but also the abundant street art of the Ostiense neighbourhood. “The American artist Kevin Snipes uses the tradition medium of ceramics to express something utterly contemporary. His artwork is a combination of atypical pottery forms and quirky figurative drawings. His pieces are influenced by an array of traditional and non-traditional art forms, including street art, architecture, contemporary painting, the avid love of art history and even children’s drawings. His work has an underlying sophistication, which is based on existentialist thought.”
