Artist of the moment……Kevin Appel

 

 

Kevin Appel is an artist who has worked in many styles over his career. Kevin Appel was born in Los Angeles, California in the year 1967. For his artistic education Appel attended Parsons located in New York City earning a B.F.A. Appel went on to earn a M.F.A. from the University of California at Los Angeles.

Appel has been a teacher and the Chair of graduate studies at the University of California at Irvine.

Appel now works in a very abstract work but its his interior works of the 1990s that I enjoy the most. When I see his interior works I am reminded of the modern Farnsworth House located in Illinois. Very modern line work, just as in in Appel’s works of the 90s. His works of this period have a great architectural base. Appel’s work now seems to have an interior design feel and is far more abstract than his earlier works. Here is an image of the Farnsworth House:
