Currently residing in Covington, LA, Ken Tate is an architect and painter who creates abstract expressionist works and collages. Beginning with a simple process, Tate uses his bare canvas and "squeegee" to tap into something almost primodoral, eventually adding color and shapes to ignite his explosive creativity. Tate's mixed media celebrity portraits are very unique impressions of the image and the individual he is working on.
Ken is in galleries in New Orleans, New Jersey, The Berkshires, Baton Rouge, North Carolina, California and Oklahoma and has been featured in eighteen solo and group art shows. His work is in many corporate collections such as Cross Creek Pictures and Raising Cane's, and in private collections in thirteen states and Toronto. Millieu, Traditional Home, Interiors, Luxe and House Beautiful magazine have all published his artwork. In 2017, he did all the marketing “art” for Bloomingdale's Spring Collection the next year. His YouTube video of him painting the triptych The Poet's Dilemma has 110,000 views.
