I make big ideas:  remixable sculptures & resequenced abstracts & morse-code fractured forests & laser palimpsests & kabuki jet engines & accretion installations & ash snow paintings & frost songsNSA keyword poems &... that is, idea-based, spirtitually motivated, aesthetically beautiful paintings, sculptures & installations. I've been reviewed in national media (Globe & Mail, The Star, CBC etc) and have shown in Tokyo, Los Angeles, Toronto and Calgary. (More bio here.)

I am producing new artwork all the time; see my K.I.A. websiteInstagram, and Facebook sites for updates. If you're curious about some of the ideas-behind & news about the work, read my blog.

Some very cool ideas need r & d and production funding. All the work so far has been self-funded, which means some of the more innovative & ambitious ideas take longer to realize. Especially the ones involving fabrication and/or technology.

So: patronage will allow more art to get made.

If any of the above has piqued your interest, your support would be greatly appreciated. I'm asking for a monthly patronage (knowing funding is coming in will help planning) but if patrons want to know some of the more specific as-yet-unrealized ideas, we can communicate via email re: ideas / patronage

New K.I.A. works as will be posted via social media and my website.

(PS: I've always been a visual artist; but for short while I had a parallel path making music, independently releasing critically-praised albums as Shinjuku Zulu, and as K.I.A.; Sheryl Crow recorded my song "Mrs Major Tom". Musical composition techniques -- remixing, sampling, rearrangement, rhythmic lines, etc, are, in fact, a major part of my visual style.)

Inside scoop as above. PLUS a t-shirt with an applied sew-on of your choice of an artwork title ("Deadbeef Atomicraft KH-11") or phrase from a wordswork or song lyrics ("under a digital moon/fractal flowers/in full bloom....)

All the above, and: I'll work your personal name creatively into the title of an artwork. As in "Acceleration, Peter Brant, Still" or "Charles Saatchi Descending a Staircase", but better.
