Biography

Kevin Bourgeois has been working as a self taught contemporary artist for over a decade using all available means to educate and expand his vocabulary in Modern Art. Starting in the late eighties with encouragement from his art teachers in high school, Kevin began personal research and exposing himself to many forms of contemporary art. During that time he began to organize displays of his work at small businesses and events as well as entering competitions and art festivals, all with an array of success. Since 1991, Kevin has been exhibiting in solo and group gallery shows. His museum and juried shows include the Virginia Beach Museum of Art, the Orlando Museum of Art, and Juxtapoz Magazine.

In 2001, he enrolled in a variety of classes at Rollins College to educate himself in academic forums, computer arts and art history. This gave Kevin the chance to become an art editor for the annual Rollins Collins Brushing Magazine. Since he had no plans to seek a full degree and had firmly established himself as an artist in Florida, he moved to New York City to work and grow as a contemporary artist. He has been published in Vapors Magazine, Omagui Magazine,Swindle Magazine and Wallspankers Magazine. Artist registries include The Drawing Center, Artist's Space, Art Battery Group, and Headquarters: a non-profit artist collective.
