Kevin Brewerton
Los Angeles, California

Kevin Brewerton was born in England and lives in Los Angeles. He is a five-time World Kickboxing Champion who was so prolific that Martial Arts Illustrated wrote: "If anyone in the sport of Karate hasn't heard of Kevin Brewerton, then they must have been in a coma for the last ten years. If the sport of kickboxing karate was a sleeping giant, then it was Brewerton who came along and woke it up." Kevin has since turned his energies towards abstract art. His paintings are grand, elegantly primitive odes to athletic figures with a link to Kevin's own personal story and style.

When you walk down the street have you ever looked around and noticed how much art there is? Take a look around, there is usually some form of art that is shaping your experience each day. Before I became a visual artist I didn’t realize how important art was to the world. I grew up thinking that art is for people who are rich and can afford expensive paintings to decorate their walls. Unfortunately, this was a limited belief that I inherited from my working class parents who were, not unlike many others, uneducated in art and too busy trying to put food on the table. What I’ve learned since then has been quite remarkable. To see the world through the lens of an artist is quite life changing and can certainly give a person a different meaning to the day-to–day moments of life. What is art? I remember asking myself, many times. Perhaps today, I still don’t have a definitive answer, because what I see as art can be totally different to what you, the viewer, sees when you look at a painting. That very reason alone is why art is important in our lives, as it’s context can be broad and appealing to many and yet the best art you will find to be personal to you in some way, whether you are aware of it or not. In my mind art has become the great mirror of humanity, reflecting what we want to see as much as it gives us what we try to avoid. We are confronted by it, in all the shapes and forms in which it presents itself: music, literature, dance, poetry, film, theater, martial arts etc. They all spring from the same well of creation. There is no right or wrong in art, it is whatever it is. Everything is art. So, why does the world need art? Maybe we need it to see ourselves in its reflection.

Artwork Details

Comments About This Piece

This piece is part of a series entitled The Road to Enlightenment. Broad geometric shapes and colors merge into a moving composition, bringing to life a powerful work of art. The art speaks to me while I paint. Something about the many roads in life and which way is true or false, and how they all come together in a mosaic of colors, is what I believed emerged. This piece is composed of oil paint on wood panel and comes ready to hang in a museum quality black floating frame.

Oil painting

Oil paint uses natural oils, such as linseed, poppy and walnut oil to bind the pigments. Oils are slow to dry, which allows the artist to rework the painting to achieve the desired effect. Also, they blend easily, which helps to achieve certain colors. With the rise of naturalism in 15th century Early Netherlandish painting, oil paints became preferred to quick drying tempera paint. Artists wanted a medium that would allow them to achieve detailed and precise effects in their paintings. Consider all of the detail in the masterpieces of Jan van Eyck and Hieronymus Bosch!
