After studies at National College of Art in Stockholm and the Royal Art Academy in Stockholm (1995), Kenneth Pils now lives and works in Stockholm. He has made numerous exhibitions in Sweden and Europe and several public art works in Sweden. He has been involved in the artist-run scene in Stockholm. He is one of the co-founders of the interdisciplinary and international art-as-research project "Being in the world" (http://beingintheworld.net).
Although rooted in painting Kenneth's works is placed in a borderland where painting merge with other fields. By using traditional hands-on material (such as paint or charcoal) in combination with digital image processing and randomizing methods he questions intentionality and interpretation. The work of art should release that which cannot be anticipated.
