The Art of Kevin Cyr

The evolution of American landscape…

by Josh Madden

Brooklyn based artist Kevin Cyr is an accomplished artist working in several mediums who finds beauty in places and things that at first glance may be considered mundane. With his Vehicle and Van series, painted die cast miniatures and Camper Kart and Camper bike sculptures he gives us a different view of the world.

Cyr's Van series project consists of paintings of 20 vans (each with a street name in Brooklyn) and the three Die Cast miniature vans he's painted all look ultra-real with their rust, graffiti, dings and faded paint jobs. The Camper Bike and Kart sculptures explore the ideas of habitat and housing; recycling and ecology; exploration and mobility.
