Ken Karlic Biography

  My watercolors can best be described as sophisticated chaos . . .
I’m interested in expressing how something feels rather than how it looks.
 
The world is not all sunny days and green pastures, as plein air painters are well aware. To the keen eye of an artist, the rough edges of concrete and iron are not blemishes to be avoided -they are to be embraced. In spontaneous brushstrokes and textures Ken Karlic's art finds
beauty in the scaffolds, rigging and taillights of everyday life. 
 
Ken received his early artistic training in architecture and graphic design at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign. Ken is a founding partner of the Baltimore area firm Splice Design Group, with clients including the Guggenheim Foundation and Smithsonian Institution. He is an instructor at Chesapeake Fine Art Studio in Stevensville MD and a member of the Mid-Atlantic Plein-Air Painters Association (MAPAPA). He is a Signature Artist Member of the Baltimore Watercolor Society and a Signature Artist Member of Noyes Museum of Art
at Stockton University in New Jersey.
