The prints, installations, and artist’s books of Kevin Haas depict familiar but overlooked aspects of the built environment. He focuses on the sprawling commercial developments found just off highways, the construction cranes and glass condos transforming city skylines, and the clutter and detritus found throughout the urban landscape.
Since 1995 his work has been featured in solo and group exhibitions across the US and in Canada. He has been included in exhibits at Davidson Galleries in Seattle, the Tacoma Art Museum, the Jundt Museum in Spokane and Deluge Contemporary Art in Victoria, BC. He is a recipient of the Artist Trust Fellowship and the Seattle Print Arts: Larry Sommers Fellowship, and was an artist in residence at the Frans Masereel Center in Belgium in 2010 and 2012. He currently resides between Toronto and Washington State where he has taught courses in printmaking, book arts and design at Washington State University since 2000. Kevin is also currently a board member of the Southern Graphics Council International.
