Kenny Burton is a self-taught artist and engineer living in Denver, CO. His art manifests the surreal, psychedelic and bizarre through mediums of acrylic painting and digital manipulation. Kenny finds inspiration in geometricity, light-play, distortion, vibrancy, spatial relationships and anomalous nature. Through his art he hopes to invoke adventure, curiosity and humor into everyday life.
Kenny was born and raised in Oklahoma City, OK and attended the University of Missouri where he pitched for the baseball program. After suffering a season-ending and effectively career-ending shoulder injury, he turned to his civil engineering degree to discover a new future. Kenny designed roadways, intersections and bike paths for years to support his artistic practice, until he was let go from his company due to impacts of the covid-19 pandemic. Deciding to make the most of his circumstance, he focused all of his efforts into becoming a full-time artist and never looked back.
When Kenny isn't working on a project in his Wash Park studio, he spends his time biking around the city, attending concerts, and hanging out with his three lava lamps and ever-growing pez dispenser collection.
