Urban Studio + Unbound creates and nourishes professional development through emphasizing participation and collaboration.
Artists are engaged in a broad range of issues and topics, and are encouraged to find new and diverse venues for their work.
US+U was founded on the understanding that the art world has rapidly changed from the traditional role of museums and galleries to self created venues and community based opportunities. Artists are encouraged to participate in administrative art activities as well as hands on studio projects.
US+U’s strength of purpose is to combine emerging and mid-career artists in a partnership to embrace a wide range of artistic approaches. This unique relationship creates a community of people who learn from each other through shared ideas and common goals.
Located in downtown Yonkers, our artists are drawn from both the local community- YOHO, Ludlow and the Bronx as well as Brooklyn, Queens & Manhattan.

Kenneth Park was born in Cincinnati, Ohio. At age of three he returned with his family to Korea. There, he spent ten years before coming back to the United States. Having spent the several formative years in Korea, he internalized what he saw and experienced, retaining an affinity for Korean culture. He enjoys exploring differences and similarities between various cultures. Reflected in his works are his interests in relations, connections, dissociations, and digression of everyday human experiences. He attempts to explore convertibility of ideologies often carrying antagonistic as well as monotonous values. Widely inspired by history of painting, in particular, abstract expressionism and painters of this period such as William de Kooning and Arshile Gorky to name a few. His technical approach is guided by spontaneity and utilizes chance to dictate the decision making process within his work.

I draw creative inspiration from plant life, fungi, and the natural world, mathematical theory, and dream interpretation. The use of abstraction, pattern and bold color are common thread in my work. I aim to create suggestive links between the existence of ones inner and outer world

My imagery is inspired by vintage photographs and I like to create art while listening to classical music such as Bach. In my current series I have been painting and wood and then cutting them with a saw to accentuate the markings left behind by the blade.
These paintings and drawings are inspired by nature, specifically from the Adirondack Mountains of New York State. I'm drawn to the movement and turbulence that I experience in nature and the way that states of nature can 'stand in' for states of consciousness and emotion.

Palenque y Carnaval is a new series of work inspired in the Colombian coast. The richness of color, movement, passion and flavor are in abundance. I have found the subject that I was looking for; after exploring other cultures for years I could not be fully satisfied. Finally I have found a cultural treasure in my own country, images that are mostly from memory but that got strengthening from a recent visit.
Millions of people have chronic illnesses like me and it is why I use my art as a social voice for it. I enjoy creating personal connections with these viewers by using familiar religious symbols and colors found in nature. It is the combination of emotion, research, and icons that result in these dreamlike statement pieces that sit somewhere between allegory and actuality.

Yorktown Heights, NY
I draw and paint figures in various media. Materials predominant in my work are graphite, colored pencil, ink and watercolor. I try to focus on the psychological aspect of human nature.
Based in Brooklyn.
Currently at the New York Academy of Art.
My niche paintings emphasize the still life as a ritual object. Creating work that is minimal and figurative allows for a studio practice that approaches the ritual with its repetition.
