Ct.King is a Cincinnati transplant artist with roots in the Boston Graffiti scene, and a Bachelors degree in photography from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston. Following his move to Cincinnati in 2002, King started actively showing artwork here in 2006 within the DIY art gallery scene. King’s common thread throughout his work can be described as “whimsically creepy with undertones of an underground urban landscape” or as King calls it “Ct Carnivaland.” King enjoys building and deconstructing with a hint of mistake-ism, where blind flow helps create his work.
For the last year Ct.King has been developing two different series of works, one with deconstruction, and the other with reconstruction. Within the two series, King strings together female heroes, with faces of calm and solitude, and some strange and dominating. In the Lost Women deconstruction series, King’s laborious process and layering offers hauntingly beautiful results. In King’s Femmes Fatales reconstruction series, King depicts spies and assassins that infiltrate and dominate within the creepy landscape of “Ct Carnivaland.” Although there is a clear contrast of emotion between the two series, they are linked by Ct’s signature rendering of atmosphere.
