Kevin recently visited Montserrat’s campus working on his newest piece Accumulated Moments, on view in the Frame 301 through April 12th. The piece took around 12 hours and three ‘acts’, or rounds, to complete. Starting with a white wall, Kevin painted the entire surface a charcoal black and began applying white fluctuating strokes, with countless boxes of chalk in hand.

DRAWN TO EXPERIENCE V2 | QCA Galleries
The Draw to Perform symposium is an exciting international art event that celebrates the unique discipline of live drawing performance. Curated by artist Ram Samocha, this vibrant two days event includes participation of great artists from all over the world. It is open to the public and provides a fabulous live art experience to all art lovers.
Drawing performance is a stream of performance art in which artists create their artwork in front of a live audience while communicating with the viewers. Mark making in drawing performance is often a result of powerful physical gesture and body movement connects elements of line, movement, space and time. The first Draw to Perform symposium was held on December 2013. The initiative to gather artists working in this field stemmed from the need to promote the growing stream of live drawing performance.
The upcoming Draw to Perform2 symposium will happen at NUM3ER, South London on Sat-Sun May 16-17, 2015. and will focus on durational drawing performances (6 hours long); the connection between performance art and drawing and the relevance of drawing as a modern medium. The symposium will include live drawing performances, video screenings, artist’s talks and lectures by 17 international (Germany, France, Brazil, U.S.A, Australia, Israel, Finland, Taiwan) and local artists and art historians. We invite all art lovers, drawing fans and students to attend this event, to follow the symposium and to participate in the discussion.
