Kevin Samuel Murphy,largely a self taught artist was born in June 1969 in London England.
His Father was from Ireland his Mother also from Irish decent.
Kevin grew up in the streets and back yards of Hackney/Stokenewington a colourful inner city neighbourhood.
He started drawing and painting as a small child, sometimes using art as form of escapism from the realities of life growing up in 1970s London.
Kevin started Art School at 20 years of age but due to lack of financial support, he was forced to give up his studies and seek employment in order to survive. These early years had a lasting impact on Kevin's life and art.
The new experiences life had to offer helped Kevin develop his technique, freeing himself from constraints of realism.
He now concentrated on transferring his inner feelings about the world at large and experiences and emotions from his subconscious mind on to canvas,using a series of spontaneous images/brush stroke /marks and intense colour.
Sometimes using thickly layered paint giving paintings an almost three dimensional feel.
KEVIN SAMUEL MURPHY'S PAINTINGS ARE IN PRIVATE COLLECTIONS IN EUROPE AND AMERICA.
