Rembrandtian Mannequin

from Under the Influence

Ka-Son participated in the Under the Influence show in Fall 2016 at Village West.

Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, Ka-Son grew up cultivating his natural artistic ability by watching the creative process of his father (a portrait artist) and his eldest brother (a graffiti artist). Having received no formal art training, they instead were his artistic teachers and technical advisors.

Ka-Son has participated in over 30 group and solo exhibitions in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. His work is included in permanent gallery collections as well as private collections. He is the winner of numerous painting awards, has appeared as a guest on the television program "SteelStacks Live!", was hired as a courtroom sketch artist for the Pocono Record Newspaper, served as director of ARTSPACE Gallery in Stroudsburg, PA, and had the honor of being Artist-In-Residence at Bergen Community College.

Ka-Son is also author of a collection of poetic verse titled A Poet-Whore, Pimped By Pain, published by Whimsical Publications, LLC.
