Paintings, Drawings and Scupltures

Ivan KendeIvan Kende at first studied figure drawing at The Art Students’ League then attended Pratt Institute in New York City.

Evolving from his signature Conte drawing series he developed an original, precisely controlled, textured acrylic painting style. These minimalist, almost abstract works exploit monochrome color to their limits.

In his most recent work, Kende delves into imagery that is almost iconic, that have a sense of metaphysical and archetypal. His past artistic adventures that seemed unrelated to each other, even to the artist, have now found expression in both two and three dimensional media, as one unified train of thought.
