Past Artist In Residence
The Australian painter, Kieran Kinney, makes picture perfect paintings. So much so that, for most viewers, the first response is one of dumbstruck admiration. Her “masterful” display of the dying art of painterly illusion elicits that same grasp of incredulity for which photorealist are famous. He received his BFA from Victoria College in Australia and has exhibited his work mainly throughout Australia and in some galleries in California. In 1997, through the Australia Council for Arts, Kinney had the opportunity to join 18th Street as an artist-in-residence. He currently lives and works in Melbourne, Australia.
