Bio

Kyle Quinn born in Okinawa, Japan, currently resides in Brooklyn, New York. He received his BFA from the Art Institute of Colorado in Graphic Design & Fine Art. He has participated in multiple artist residencies and fairs around the country including Ace Air, the Ace Hotel’s Artist-In-Residency program in New York. His work shifts mediums between collage, drawing, photography and painting. He has self-published artist books, art publications and zine’s for over a decade and started the publishing collective, RAW MEAT. Raw Meat is a solo and collaborative artist collective and curatorial platform for current emerging artists with the emphasis on the body and object. He has had a series of writings and photographs presented by AA Bronson for Frieze Art Fair (London) in 2016. His work has been shown nationally and internationally, along with works published for BUTT Magazine, NYSAI Literacy Press, Wussy Magazine, Posture Magazine, Vice, Fader and more. He has also been archived at The Frances Mulhall Achilles Library at the Whitney Museum of American Art and Yale University Library for his artist books and photographs. 

The following is a press release quote from Kyle Quinn’s last show at Gamut Gallery in Minneapolis, MN: “Formerly a Minneapolite, currently NY-based, Kyle Quinn first showed at Gamut during the group exhibition medley, C4W. With nods to photographer icons Nan Goldin and Robert Mapplethorpe and a splash of 70’s gay erotica, Quinn’s work explores the subversive and intensely personal.”
