Ken Tate is a brilliant force of creativity, ready to take shape and form just like the art he makes. You will often find him just like this picture, with his hair blowing in the wind like some mad scientist. Don't ask him the time either, or you might just find him checking his wristwatch up near his elbow. But time being neither here nor there, Ken Tate is still the greatest living artist of our time. And you have come here to find that out.
