Welcome to my little slice of the internet. I'm glad you are here!
My name is Kenneth Key...

I'm a 66 year old who grew up in Chicago on the other side of perfect. Serving natural life without the possibility of parole, I am reaching beyond windowless walls in the hopes of sharing, and maybe selling some art.
I'm an artist who paints with the intent to provoke thought, conversation and hope. My objective is to bring joy and enjoyment to my viewers. I paint because it’s therapeutic, but also because it supports me and my son who, himself, is serving life in prison. Art creates connections and moments between us.
I’m self-taught and have been painting for over 30 years now. I paint everything, but people themes are my first love. I love art that speaks; art that makes one think; art that is a reflection of our spiritual and social consciousness. Personal expression of my culture is what I often try to bring to the canvas.
By sharing my art, it expresses truths despite the labels society puts on me. For I am still human. I laugh, I feel, I cry despite being forgotten by many. There is something profound and awesomely emotional about painting. I’ve been blessed to have such a talent, and I appreciate the opportunity to share some of my art with you.

All of my prints are masterfully reproduced on beautiful Satin Canvas that is a OBA free, neutral white water resistant canvas composed of a luxurious poly/cotton blend giving it a uniform low glare finish. This canvas has superior color brilliance and image definition. It is ideal for art decor and fine art reproductions. Specifically created for PrisonArtWare.com by one of the top fineart canvas manufacturers in the country. Additionally, my work is mounted and stretched across premium, high quality wood stretcher bars, dried to reduce warping and cracking.
