Artist Bio

Ken Tate

Ken works with abstract painting forms and taps into something almost primordial – something archetypal. He is drawn to color and shapes and taps into pure uncontrollable creativity. His mixed media celebrity portraits are very unique impressions of the image and the individual he is working on. He has been commissioned to do over 50 portraits and even does corporate commissions as well. Ken is in galleries in New Orleans, New Jersey, The Berkshires, Baton Rouge, North Carolina, California and Oklahoma and has been featured in eighteen solo and group art shows. His work is in many corporate collections such as Cross Creek Pictures and Raising Cane's, and in private collections in thirteen states and Toronto. Millieu, Traditional Home, Interiors, Luxe and House Beautiful magazine have all published his artwork. In 2017, he did all the marketing “art” for Bloomingdale's Spring Collection the next year. His YouTube video of him painting the triptych The Poet's Dilemma has 110,000 views.
