Kevin Curran grew up in Upstate New York, where he used to make milk cartons into action figures and toy guns out of scrap wood. He double-majored in Studio-Art and Philosophy. Now he teaches sculpture and art history in Tokyo for half the year, and spends the rest of his time in Bushwick where he keeps a studio.
"I want to combine traditional art making and references to art history with science fiction, pop culture and my personal history. I consider my practice to be centered around drawing; the speed of drawing, the sense of gesture and the accumulation over time of decisions that form an image and a context are all part of my process.
Right now I am making drawings and sculptures. I want to arrange these things in the space to make an environment that is at once both homey and narrative."
