Kevin Snipes was born in Philadelphia, but grew up mostly in Cleveland, Ohio. He holds a BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art and did MFA work at the University of Florida, in Gainesville, Florida. From there he has participated in several artist residency programs, including the Clay Studio, in Philadelphia and Watershed Center for Ceramic Arts, in New Castle, Maine. He was also a visiting artist at Louisiana State University, in Baton Rouge. After completing a yearlong Taunt Fellowship from the Archie Bray Foundation in 2008, in Helena, MT, Kevin continued as a resident artist at the Bray until January of 2011. Exhibiting both nationally and internationally, Kevin has exhibited as far away as Jingdezhen, China. Kevin combines his love of making unconventional pottery with an obsessive need to draw on everything that he produces, creating a uniquely dynamic body of work.
