'Bunch Of Grunts'
Date: Apr 28 – May 11Space: Main Gallery
Artist Ken Sando is bringing his new solo exhibition ‘Bunch Of Grunts’ to the Creative Arts Napier Main Gallery this April.
Sando’s charcoal, indian ink, and acrylic works reference universal themes and symbolisms, while he uses regional New Zealand/Aotearoa as a backdrop in most works. He shows a contemporary appeal that people tend to ﬁnd a refreshing alternative to more conventional artistic depictions. Ken uses his medium to speciﬁcally reference a variety of historical and current political viewpoints and art movements.
A practising artist for over 35 years, Ken has exhibited nationally in solo and collective shows, he holds a Degree in Visual Art & Design and has held curatorial and project management roles in the Arts sector acros NZ.
“My art making is driven by an ongoing fascination with the construction and polemics of figurative and representational art and the perceptions of both the artist and viewer to the made image. Sardonically, I attempt to twist the perceived accepted forms of normative constructs by introducing, through my constructed imagery, fanciful paradoxical fabrications.” Ken Sando
Come along to celebrate the opening of ‘Bunch Of Grunts’ on Friday, April 28 at 5pm showing until May 11th
