June - July 2011
With his father a painter and college professor of art, Scott Kaven, our June Artist of the Month, grew up in the Des Moines area with art all around him. Scott went to Grand View University, graduating with a major in Fine Arts and Design. Today, his days are spent working on commercials, music videos, and movies. His nights are for creating works of art on a more classical level. The overlapping of the technical and fine arts is blended every day and night. Each multimedia painting tells a story and has a reason. Every show is inspired by the people he meets and deals with everyday, many times painting a stylized portrait of the very person who commisions the piece or requests a show. "Art is our candy, says Scott, "eat alot of it." See his work in Weertz Fellowship Hall.
