Kenn Orphan’s art focuses on the power of color and symbolism in relation to natural landscapes, dreamscapes and ancient spiritual texts.
Many of Orphan’s works, such as “Testament”, reflect a celebration of the symbolism and calligraphy of spiritual writings found in Islamic Arabesque and Sanskrit. His landscapes explore the evocative role of color in relation to form and substance. And he has spent considerable time painting the world of dreams and their marriage to the natural world as represented by works like “flight of Ideas” and “Wander.”
Orphan has exhibited his art and photography in many local shows such as ArtWalk San Diego and Art with a Heart and has works on display in San Diego and across the United States and Europe.
