Ken alters his themes, as much of his work is bespoke. However his personal choice at the moment is exploring war and weapons, along with skulls and horror. He finds the colours and the technique required to be extremely interesting and this is aiding his development with shading. All his work is airbrushed, using acrylics, 2K basecoats and FX .
Despite being registered blind, at 55 years old, Ken is having fun experimenting with paints, colours and different media, including phone covers, fridges, guitars, yo yo's, ear defenders and many more.
His motto is 'if it stands still and will fit through my door I will paint it'!
A debut exhibition of Ken Newman's work will be displayed at Ripley Arts Centre, 24 Sundridge Avenue, Bromley BR1 2PX from 3-27 February 2015. Viewing will be by appointment only - Telephone: 020 8464 5816.
