Biography / Kevin Peterson

Kevin Peterson’s work is exploring the varied journeys we take through life. It’s about growing up and living in a world that is broken. The artist was born in 1979 in Elko, Nevada. After a childhood which included stints in Nevada, Michigan and Washington, Peterson arrived in Texas in 1996. There, he studied art and psychology, receiving his Bachelor in 2001. His work can be found on his collaboration with URBAN NATION on Project M/14 in 2019.

Peterson pursued a career in social work after graduating. He worked as a Probation Officer in Austin for 3 years. During this time, difficulties with drugs and alcohol plagued his life. During a rehab Peterson rediscovered his love for the creation of art and decided to pursue this passion. His paintings are dealing with trauma, fear and loneliness and the strength that it takes to survive and thrive. They each contain the contrast of the untainted, young and innocent against a backdrop of a worn, ragged, and defiled world.
