Kenneth studied illustration and painting at the Columbus College of Art and Design. Shortly after he became a Photo-realist painter for the now defunct Outdoor Advertising Industry. After nearly ten years of experience, and becoming lead illustrator, in 2001 he moved to New York City, which lead to additional commercial projects. After the 2008 economic collapse and nearly 15+ years as a commercial artist, Kenneth established “Kenneth Burris Studio”, in 2012. Kenneth now is an independent artist, freelance art consultant.
Kenneth Burris resides in New York City, where he spends time appropriating new technologies into his creative process. He aims to investigate the future of our world through imagination, and invites his audience to examine the impending global climate changes through his art.
Kenneth Burris Studio is in Long Island City, Queens.
