“Life and everything around it” - private commission 4ft x 4ft paint markers on wood panel
Kyle Confehr is an artist, a man, and a friend of the talented local blue collar art communities in which he has existed. Studies in illustration and graphic design and life have sent him living in Pennsylvania, New York, and Texas. His professional journey began interning and freelancing at Zoo York Skateboards under the umbrella company Ecko. There he studied graffiti and its influence in the fashion world.
This journey has developed a variety of the skills that he uses today and is so much like the connecting, evolving, and traveling images in his work. Many freelance opportunities have led to a merging of design and illustration with his personal work. In 2010 he started showing his work in galleries in Dallas which led to editorial illustrations for local papers in the DFW Metroplex, his first solo show in 2012 at The Public Trust (formerly Art Prostitute), his first group exhibition in 2013, and another solo show in the spring of 2014.
