Ken Walters Featured Artist - A Must Read
Ken Walters Fine Art
Ken Walter's story is not only emotionally touching, it is also an inspiration for anyone who cares to read how he came to be an artist. It made me think of all the people that want to be artists and procrastinate about the tiniest of things and yet there are people like Ken who's art is a product of endurance against life's difficulties.
In Ken's own words he says,"I started creating contemporary abstract digital art 7 years ago following a minor stroke. It originally started as a way to communicate with the nurses and doctors, as I couldn't speak well."
"I've been compelled to continue with the art by some inner urge, and enjoy creating in my own style. Most of my work is organic in nature, it's based on the cells and energies in our bodies, biology, and my interest in astronomy. Add to that, my mood memories and daily influences also end up as art."
"I'm 55, physically disabled, have cfs and hard of hearing. My art along with the Internet is my window on the world. I see the world through the Internet, and the world sees me through my art. It's another reason I chose digital art as my medium, my files are my art and my art is Internet ready. It doesn't smell of paint and turps, I find it hard to hold brushes or pencils so the modified pen and tablet I use, along with my own software and pc, are all the tools I need to create my work. My computer is my canvas and my storage cabinet, back up disks and the website are my portfolio."
I adore this style of minimalism.
This really does feel as if I am looking down upon a city.
And this final image is one that I instantly admired.
I see flowers and corals of the sea. You can read the image title, and this comes from Ken's Mixed Emotions Gallery, and yet I see something different, which is the beauty of abstract.
It has been one of my greatest pleasures to feature Ken Walters who is deserving of far more than I can give here. I salute all who make something of their lives against massive adversity. Life truly is what we make it!
