"ok...some mistakes were made..."
Newest interview appears now on deviantART
Another recent interview can be found here in the LA Alternative Press
So this is my little stream of ADD consciousness...As much as I try I don't seem to put things here with any particular Rhyme or Reason. They are works from long ago or last night. Snapshots and series I spent months on. It is also a place for the experiments, to see if the little ones can walk on their own.
About a decade or so ago, I developed a technique I call "Oilgraphing" It is a mixed media technique blending traditionally printed photographs with oil color. They are now days mounted on custom made wooden panels, but I've used everything from canvas to metal. I began performing the pieces in 1996 for audiences and those now make up over a third of the work
No image here is created in Photoshop.
I live in LA at the Mystic Lounge Chapel
I am a unrepentant abuser of the elipse...
Come by. We'll make some pictures.
Yes...that's toilet paper. I've found nothing that works as well.

"well, best late than never, and in case it matters, my deepest apologies. I am totally ashamed that I did not take the necessary time to go through all your stream when i got to "know" you... I thought, I will get to see the new pics and so....SHAME ON ME!
How much was i missing? oh god, why didn't you illuminate me before!!!!!
My dear Kevissimo, i find your stream a source of illumination and visual challenge, i fantasize your are a cool guy as well and overall, if anyone reads this sort of stuff, dont make my mistake: take your time in visiting the stream, its worth its while.."

"". . . life is a tragedy, in which man is subject to Fate. But this
universal tragedy has its own catharsis, which is art, the eternal
source of youth from which constantly springs and sparkles
the magic water that makes life flow again in the dry reeds
burned by the fires of thought." Giovanni Gentile"

"Dark, moody images full of emotion that grab me and hold me captive. I'm in awe of his technique and his vision. One of my favorite artists here on flickr."
August 19th, 2006
"Kevissimo’s work is powerful, deep, often luscious. His portraits capture the complexity of human emotion.
I think, one of the most important artists on flickr—for his authenticity, for capturing life’s drama without comprising, but actually highlighting, its truths."
