Kennith Humphrey

Artist's Bio

Vicksburg, MS artist Kennith Humphrey has gained national and international recognition, and in the process has realized his dream of being a professional painter.  Asked to describe his art and the style in his paintings he explained:

"I don't call them paintings, I call them sketches because they capture a fleeting moment.  My art is not realism, not finite, not exact.  It is an escape from realism, an interpretation of the moment.  I don't call it a certain  style.  It's free flowing, being myself.  It's my quick interpretation.  I want to paint people as they are at the moment."

The latest series of black and white mixed media paintings represent a departure from his usual colorful style.
