Bio

Taylor McKimens è nato a Seattle (WA) nel 1976, è cresciuto a Winterhaven (CA) e attualmente vive e lavora a Brooklyn (NY). I suoi dipinti e le sue installazioni confondono la linea tra disegno e scultura. Le forti influenze dei fumetti e di un’infanzia vissuta in una piccola città di confine del deserto della California, gli forniscono un vantaggio per l’energia tragi-comica delle sue opere.

Taylor McKimens was born in Seattle (WA) in 1976, was raised in Winterhaven (CA) and currently lives and works in Brooklyn (NY). His paintings and installations blur the line between drawing and sculpture. Strong comic book influences and a childhood in a small desert border town in California lend an edge to the tragico-comic energy of his pieces.
