“It makes me feel good about myself to paint. I like having that as one of my jobs to make money.”
Internationally exhibited painter Kevin Hosseini has been creating art for the past 13 years. Kevin has lived most of his life in Southern California and currently lives in El Cajon near San Diego. His art is largely inspired by his interest in travel and diverse cultural influences as he describes: “I like to paint different countries and things I like such as mariachi music. I love the Middle East too.” Many of his paintings are inspired by his travels and depict places he has visited or one day hopes too.
Kevin was introduced to art through an autism behaviorist who had a degree in art from Rhode Island Institute of Design. Kevin reflects that he often utilizes art to help process the difficult times and the symbols that can emerge in his art can often be autobiographical: “I've painted about things happening in my life. I have painted police cars and police officers when I was having trouble. I have painted pictures of my family and other things that are important to me like music and the middle east.”
Kevin has developed and honed his visual style which has brought him a great amount of success as an artist. Kevin’s style is marked by painterly brush strokes in contrast to large areas of solid color. He loves to paint with rich vibrant colors and uses acrylic paints which can give the painting rich texture and depth. Some of Kevin’s greatest accomplishments as an artist are having his paintings displayed in the Museum of Modern Art in Kiev, Ukraine, The State Russian Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia, The Smithsonian S. Dillon Ripley Center in Washington D.C. and recently at The California Museum. He is an active artist with the nonprofit The Art of Autism.
