Hyperrealistic Paintings by Kevin Peterson

Kevin Peterson
Kevin Peterson is a talented artist and hyperrealist painter, who was born in 1979 in Elko, Nevada and currently based in Houston, Texas. Kevin received his BFA in Art at Austin College in Sherman, TX. He currently works out of Winter Street Studios. Peterson has an unparalleled passion for urban details, abandoned places in which he paints fairytale-like interactions of children and wolves, birds, and bears in scenes.

My work is about the varied journeys we take through life. It’s about growing up and living in a world that is broken. These paintings are about trauma, fear and loneliness and the strength that it takes to survive and thrive. They each contain the contrast of the untainted, young and innocent against a backdrop of a worn, ragged, and defiled world. Support versus restraint, bondage versus freedom, and tension versus slack are all themes that I often visit. My work deals with isolation, loneliness and longing teamed with a level of optimistic hope. Issues of race and the division of wealth have arisen in my recent work. This work deals with the idea of rigid boundaries, the hopeful breakdown of such restrictions, as well as questions about the forces that orchestrate our behavior.
