Kevin Yaun is an abstract impressionist painter based in Laguna Beach, California where he Is completing his MFA with LCAD. He uses bold brushwork and a minimalist palette to interpret everyday scenes. Light and shadow play a strong part in his work, using form to express the essence of each object.

In 2008, he graduated with a BFA from Savannah College of Art & Design to start a career in advertising as a commercial artist and digital designer. For over a decade, he worked with global brands including Netflix, Adidas and Google to design creative digital experiences. The past few years brought him back to his roots as an artist leading to his first solo show in Los Angeles in 2019. Since then he’s been in multiple group shows and is now living as a full-time oil painter and student.
