About

Kevin Snipes creates ceramic vessel forms that act as canvases for self referential narratives that are brought to the viewer through a combination of illustration and symbolism, obscure glyphs, and comical/whimsical motifs. Within the discipline of ceramics, his talent is unquestionable, utilizing abstract and challenging shapes, as well as a vast array of underglazes and oxide wash techniques to bring his illustrations to life. Kevin Snipes is an American visual artist born in Philadelphia and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. He is currently Visiting Scholar/Researcher at the University of Georgia Department of Art in Athens, GA. He received a B.F.A. in ceramics and drawing from the Cleveland Institute of Art in 1994 and completed graduate studies at the University of Florida in 2003. Snipes’ artwork explores concepts of otherness. He employs techniques of figurative narration and craft to form objects that cross the boundary between sculpture and painting. His work is a combination of atypical pottery forms, quirky figurative drawings and contemporary vernacular language. His pieces are influenced by an array of traditional and nontraditional art forms, including street art, architecture, contemporary painting, the avid love of art history and even children’s toys and drawings. His work has an underlying sophistication, which is based in existentialist thought, creating a dynamic body of work that is both culturally transcendent and personally identifiable. Through his use of multi-faceted narratives Snipes challenges the viewer to consider the concept of otherness in confrontation with the self. Throughout his adult life, Snipes has maintained a nomadic existence, allowing a sense of place to augment his work.
