“TO BE ABLE TO TRANSFORM MULTIPLE IMAGES INTO ONE AND CREATE AN ART PIECE…PRICELESS!”

About the Artist: I was born in Colombia, married the love of my life and raised two high-spirited and happy children. I live in Encinitas, one of the most exquisite cities inside America’s Finest City, San Diego, California.
Passion for photography was inspired by photographing my family. In 2011, I spent 5 weeks in India which allowed me to see the world differently through my camera lens. A new aesthetic was born within me; observation, color, humanity, life energy.
When I returned to San Diego, I toured every nook and cranny of my beloved city and beyond looking through this new prism. After some years and thousands of images collected, someone asked, what are you going to do with all those images? Well, in 2015 I was exposed to Photoshop Artistry with Sebastian Michaels and discovered the endless possibilities of using and incorporating my images into works of art. Inspiration and passion intensified. So my journey continues….

My desire through this medium “Digital Art” is to convey a personal expression more than a realistic rendering of a subject. I love “storytelling” through my art. I use Photoshop to transform drawings and my photography into many different styles of art. It can mimic different mediums – from acrylics to oil and pastels. Just as an artist uses a brush, a sculptor uses clay, I as a digital artist, use a computer screen as my canvas to create…this enables me to explore my imagination in infinitude.

Above is Trombone Fourth of eight Silhouette series. I’m fascinated by Tonal Value, it is an artist prize possession of artistic mastery. This art piece reflects my tonal awareness.

“To send light into the darkness of men’s hearts – such is the duty of the artist.” -Robert Schumann

His love of nature and the world around us is captured in his works that dazzle the eye with their intense color palette. “I strive for that emotional reaction connecting the viewer to my work,” states the artist.

                                                                                           

Kene’s watercolors are treasured in many private collections throughout the United States and Europe. His watercolors have earned numerous awards in juried shows and exhibitions. A portion of Kene’s sale are donated to different children’s organizations throughout San Diego County.

Tenth Exhibition

El Camino High School                                      Student Art Reception

Friday, January 17, 2020

 

“O’side Art”

El Camino High School Art reveals to the viewer a collective and multifaceted prism of students’ imaginations in our very own community. Their art reaches out from the Valley to the Pier and beyond, to showcase fantasies, dreams, and wonders. The oeuvre of traditional two-dimensional images you are viewing, ranges in style, media, and dimensions. The constant of the work, however, is our students’ unlimited creative potential in a world of constant technological change and diminishing imagination.

“The Art of Photography”

  

 

Here at El Camino High School, students begin their photography journey with the basics of taking pictures with cell phones. Afterwards, they start to explore taking high quality photos with digital cameras. Once they have a full understanding of how to capture an image with the correct exposure, contrast, composition and focus, the next step is to add creative edits. With the use of the latest Adobe Photoshop software, students gain new insights as they explore various editing techniques. By the year’s end students have completed numerous photographic works of art that share their creative voice.

Seventh Exhibition

Presented by the Oceanside Cultural Foundation
                                                             
Born and raised in France, I moved to San Francisco at the age of 22, in search of adventure and broader horizons. As a child, I carried my father’s equipment while he filmed and photographed the places we visited in Europe. I have been traveling since, with a camera as my best friend.
I learned the intricacies of the darkroom with a San Francisco fashion photographer. I became familiar with the computer world while I worked as a Research Librarian at QUALCOMM. Since 1987, I have lived in Leucadia, a small beach town in North County San Diego.
In 2008, I started a project documenting how women were represented in different countries through the mannequins living behind store windows. It soon turned into an art form, as I used the reflections off the glass of the stores to create surreal, multi-layered images. I like to spend time in large cities here and abroad, walking in the streets, searching for their urban essence through architecture, street art, and store mannequins.
