Kenn Raaf is a painter and sculptor who often combines these two disciplines in his works, creating wall-hanging works with three-dimensional elements that break the wall between the viewer and the picture plane. Ken often uses his practice to address political and introspective subject matter, using darkened colours and thick, heavy textures to convey powerful emotions.

Robert’s attention to detail is at the forefront in each work, and the results are subtly spectacular.
