Kenny Pittock, ‘Drawing of Laura Jean under NGV stained-glass ceiling’, 2015
Kenny Pittock is a 27-year-old artist working full-time from a studio in the Nicholas Building, in Melbourne’s CBD. He works across a wide range of media, although he favours ceramics, painting, drawing, text and photography. His art uses humour and sentimentality to playfully respond to contemporary Australian culture. Broadly, Kenny’s interested in people and identity; more specifically, he explores the overlaps and boundaries between the public and the personal. He has exhibited his art both locally and internationally, but nothing compares to the time he kicked an apple core through a basketball ring from half court using his left foot.
