About Ka-Son Reeves

Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, Ka-Son Reeves grew up cultivating his natural artistic ability by watching the creative processes of his father–a portrait artist–and his eldest brother–a local Graffiti artist. Having received no formal art training, they instead were his artistic teachers and technical advisors. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from the City University of New York with a Bachelor of Science degree in Communication Design. After years employed as a Graphic and Web Designer, he started IHNIGMUH LLC, a graphic design studio specializing in print and web design and development. Now revisiting his passion, he experiments and expresses himself as a painter using the acrylic medium.

Over the past few years, this emerging artist has made quite a name for himself. He's participated in over 30 group and solo exhibitions in Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey. His work is included in permanent gallery collections as well as private collections. In June 2009, Ka-Son participated in a juried exhibition at Long Island University's Salena Gallery in Brooklyn, NY, honoring filmmaker Spike Lee. He also displayed his work at the NAACP Centennial Convention in New York City. His painting 'Here For The Takin' ', won 1st place in the Acrylics division at the 2011 Pocono Arts Council's Members Show. His paintings 'Tune-Up' and 'Jazz In Space' won back to back 1st place awards in painting at both the 2011 and 2010 Antoine Dutot Museum's 'Music Motif' Show. It was his first time exhibiting at the Dutot. He has served as co-curator of 1199SEIU Gallery in NYC, has appeared as a guest on the television program 'SteelStacks Live!', was hired as a courtroom sketch artist for the Pocono Record Newspaper on two high profile court cases and served as director of ARTSPACE Gallery in Stroudsburg, PA.

Most recently Ka-Son's work was included in a juried exhibition presented by African Voices magazine titled: 'A Choice Of Weapons: The New Renaissance Artists'; an exhibition celebrating the 100th anniversary of legendary photographer Gordon Parks.

Ka-Son is also author of a collection of poetic verse titled 'A Poet-Whore, Pimped By Pain', published by Whimsical Publications, LLC.

“My art represents the myriad spirit and emotion of urban life, with an emphasis on LIFE, as seen through my eyes, imagined in my mind and felt in my heart. That Life in my art is not limited to any one physical location, but expanded upon in an attempt to embrace a universal perspective. When I sit down to paint or draw, I try hard not to think with the idea of what one may consider acceptable, or what another may feel is appropriate. I just try to apply my artistic knowledge and experience to recreate what’s in my mind, whether it’s through sheer imagination or direct and indirect experience. I do believe a colorful imagination, experience, knowledge and a mind open to receive more are principal in helping to nurture artistic growth, and that is what I try to apply in my work.”
