In the original of this mixed media work, ABSTRACT IV, the artist was able to give the impression of movement with just the creative use of lines, amongst a myriad of colours. Add a frame and hang on its own, or combine with other prints from this artist to create an even more dynamic effect. 

Size: Print is 8" x 10", signed by the artist, and matted to 11" x 14". 

The Artist: Ken Clements, a Cambridge artist born in Guelph and raised in Kitchener, took his first job after graduating from Conestoga College in graphic design and advertising, at a company called Typsetira. A Toronto-based boutique type house, it was run by probably one of the most famous Canadian type designers, Les Usherwood. As a Custom Headline Studio Typographer, Ken’s world was expressed in black and white, positive and negative. Next, he moved to Headliners of Canada, known for highly modified typography using film, cameras and hand lettering.
The rise of computer use in graphics caused the demise of type houses, and the long tradition of this art form. With a career change in mind Ken attended Sheridan College in Oakville, for furniture design, where he “got over his fear of colour”.
Twenty years later he began experimenting and playing with oil pastels. “It took me a while to get here, but I feel like all of the experiences have contributed to where I am [as an artist] today. Ken’s work is made of layers of mixed media, often adding more texture and movement by cutting into those layers with other tools, creating his detailed pieces.
