Kevin Bourgeois (b.1969) is an American artist, muralist, and activist known for his photorealistic social-political graphite drawings and thematic installations.
Bourgeois is a self-taught artist who depicts his subjects in narratives that deal with the struggle for identity. Using collage methods to dissect pop culture through a combination of photorealism, illustration, and pop symbolism, Bourgeois explores past cultural movements as well as current ideologies, mass media, and a search for self. Collage and assemblage are of crucial importance to Bourgeois' practice in both his graphite works and those that incorporate found objects.
He has been commissioned to create murals for AOL Ventures and Allison Sarofim, and has exhibited in New York with Causey Contemporary, Exit Art, Museo do la Ciudad de Mexico, Collector's Contemporary in Singapore. Recently, Bourgeois exhibited at Palazzo Ca'Zanardi during the 2015 La Biennale di Venezia. Bourgeois also presented his work at Volta 12 in Basel Switzerland with a site-specific interactive installation titled, At Play in the Fields With the Lord.
Bourgeois lives and works in New York, NY where he DJs for immersive theater when he's not in his studio drawing.
