Dreams Burn Down
New Works by Ken Keirns

Ken Keirns is a Northern California artist who grew up in Flint, Michigan. After spending nearly a decade in Chicago, Ken moved out West in late 2007 to paint full-time and complain about the lack of snow. While his primary focus has been working with oil paint, he has been known to deliver the odd sculpture, toy prototype or mixed media piece. His recurrent subject matter revolves around cranially endowed women and monkeys interlaced with personal experiences, dreams, and the occasional bad pun. Ken’s education was in graphic design. He only took a few formal painting classes — he is mostly self-taught through research and trial & error.
Rotofugi Gallery is located at 1955 W. Chicago Ave. in Chicago’s “East Village” neighborhood, immediately next door to Rotofugi Designer Toy Store.
The gallery is always open on Saturdays from Noon until 4pm, and can be opened upon request by asking almost anytime our toy store is open (M-Sat 12-8pm, Sun 12-5pm). If you are making a special trip please call ahead and we will make sure you can gain entry to the gallery.
