Kind of Blue
Artist Statement
Ken Jackson was born and raised in Detroit, MI. His first formal education as an artist came through Mr. Amen's class at Duffield Elementary, then late Ms. Stroud at Martin Luther King jr. high school. Later in life, he learned art from legendary graffiti artist, CASH, of New York's Spanish Bomb Squad. Ken later went on to start his own comic book series "City Hare", "The Planet" and a slew of others while taking a semester at College for Creative Studies. Ken would then travel around the world, finding guidance from veterans such as Ken Laager, Karl Gnass and Rebecca Gray.
