Kevin Kadar is a graduate of Cooper Union in New York and has been exhibiting in Portland for over 25 years. He is included in many corporate, private and public collections including the Tacoma Art Museum, The Oregon Historical Society and the Hallie Ford Museum of Art at Willamette University in Salem, OR.
Currently making his home in the Pacific Northwest, Kevin Kadar has lived and traveled throughout Western Europe for several years. During his time spent overseas, Kadar has found inspiration and kinship with the landscape masters, painters such as Constable, Turner and Corot. Studying their work in the museums of France, Italy and Portugal, Kadar adopted many of their approaches: theatrical lighting, intense weather phenomena and dramatic composition take precedence over direct observation and literal documentation. Kadar’s paintings are imbued with a timeless, otherworldly quality only found in one's dreams and imaginations.
