About Zac Kenny
Zac Kenny was born in Kingston, Ontario, where he attended the Creative Arts Focus Program. He holds a B.F.A. in Drawing and Painting from the Ontario College of Art and Design, Toronto, and an M.A. in Art Education from Concordia University, Montreal.
The aim of his artwork is not for viewers to attempt interpretations, but to internalize the colours and energy, thus creating their own personal and emotional connection to his pieces. His work is inspired by a diverse range of interests, including science fiction, quantum physics, psychology, and the environment. The infinite potential of the unmarked surface sparks excitement for Kenny, who begins with an idea, emotion, memory or personality, which generates an initial colour choice and a combination of ideas and intuition to complete the work.
Kenny has exhibited in Canada and the U.S.A., including at Gold and Ginger Gallery, Toronto (2013), AKIN Collective, Toronto (2012), Brutopia Gallery, Montreal (2012), The Hilton, New York (2012), Ctrllab, Montreal (2011), VAV Gallery, Montreal (2010), Union Gallery, Kingston (2008), Whippersnapper Gallery, Toronto (2007), and Scratch Gallery, Toronto (2007). He will also be exhibiting at Navillus Gallery in September 2014. Kenny initiated a children’s art education project, The Art Room, in 2011 for which he continues to paint and produce. He currently works as a medical illustrator for theMcGill University Health Centre.
