Self Portrait 2020

Narrm [Melbourne] • Australia

Kyle was born in Christchurch, New Zealand and spent his childhood creatively exploring all his passions of singing, acting, dancing, arts, and performing.

 

In 2011 he began to focus on the fundamentals of drawing and began exploring art styles and techniques. This was followed by years of creating a solid foundation of skills to build his practice and style on top of. He has travelled the globe extensively, breathing in as many cultures and expressions of identity as is presented to him. Taking a philosophical and sociological appropriation to the queer aspects of infinite cultures.

 

The near decade from ’11-‘19 was mainly compiled of self education in the skills of life drawing, colour theory, oil techniques, and more. This student mentality period was completed by travelling to Los Angeles and studying under artists Michael Hussar, Kevin Llewellyn, David Cheifetz to solidify his understanding of his own practice. To create art using the classical artistic techniques of old [and new] masters. With one particular affinity to artist Rembrandt Van Rijn.

 

Settling down in Narrm [Melbourne] Australia Kyle works to develop his art practice further in an endless exploration of self. With his main passion working in oil colour. He has a focus of creating emotive, dark, figurative, and Queer artworks that explore the creative identity. Taking old world styles and traditional oil painting practices he reinterprets them with modern subjects and in Queer cultural themes.
