An Interview with Steven Kenny.
Who and where are you from?
My name is Steven Kenny. I grew up in a town called Peekskill which is in the beautiful Hudson Valley of New York, about 50 miles north of New York City.
How you got into this?
In third grade I won first place in a Safety Poster Contest in my age group. That early artistic recognition and praise is very likely the event that set me on the path to becoming an artist.
What is your driving force?
I think one of the main motivations for most artists is to be heard, seen, understood, appreciated, and loved. Since childhood, art has been the most effective way of attracting attention and expressing my thoughts and feelings. By creating objects of beauty that intrigue viewers I can arouse their curiosity, draw them in, and express myself on multiple, non-verbal levels.
What kind of work you do and why?
I’m a surrealist. Surrealism allows me to express myself from an intuitive, unconscious place while still painting images that walk a line between reality and dream.
