Ken Gold Art in Chicago

Through my art I am encouraging the viewer to feel something about the object they are viewing, whether it be recognition, familiarity, curiosity, empathy, happiness or horror.

I have traveled extensively throughout the US, Latin America, Europe and Asia, and always have a camera ready to photograph animals, nature, people and architecture. I have lived in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Atlanta, The Netherlands, Singapore and Berlin, and currently reside in Chicago. My work has been exhibited in galleries and museums in the Chicago area as well as in Los Angeles and New York. In the summer of 2002 I completed a mural as part of the Hubbard Street Mural Project in Chicago. Some of my more conventional photographs are also on permanent display in zoos in the U.S. and Europe.
