Kevin Yaun (b. 1986) has lived and worked in a variety of places over the past 20 years and now has a studio in Downtown Los Angeles. His transient lifestyle brought him from his hometown in Georgia to living in Colorado, The Netherlands, England, Thailand, Singapore, and California to name a few places. His paintings reflect an intermittent view of home and ask us to picture it as an abstract concept. What do the architectural shapes in space make you feel? Do the distant warm lights of homes reflected in the glass seem inviting or unattainable?

In 2022, Kevin started his MFA at Laguna College of Art & Design focusing on painting and began showing with the Billis Williams gallery in LA. Since this initial group show with the gallery, his work has travelled around the US for art fairs and various group shows. His work has been featured in public settings like the Laguna Art Museum and has been collected by homes around the world. After graduating in May 2024, Kevin will have his first solo show with Billis Williams where he will showcase a collection of large and medium scale works that create a dialogue around the idea of home.
