Kean Leathem – Biography

.
Kean Leathem
Kean Leathem is an internationally known artist with over 30 years of drawing and painting experience. His artwork was exhibited for the first time in 1989 in a gallery in the Northwest Territories, Canada.

His life work consists of over 2000 original pieces and thousands of reproductions which have become part of private and corporate collections all over the world.

Being of First Nations and European descent creating Artwork has been and remains an invaluable tool of self discovery. Kean’s work is primarily of natural settings like sky and landscapes, and forests.

Canada provides endless inspiration and the opportunity to explore relationships with the environment and ourselves.

Kean Leathem doesn’t favor one style or technique of paint, which has enabled him to explore the feeling of creativity from a real sense of beginning. His use of acrylics and canvas are the only constants.

Kean Leathem works primarily from imagination and memory and rarely uses preliminary sketches. Ultimately, he strives to communicate a meditative effect on the viewer of his work, where the subject is suggested, but rarely painted.

Kean Leathem – Stone Circles Paintings

.

The mystery of the Stone Circles has just begun to unravel. Some of them were built at the time when the pyramids were being constructed along the Nile River.

The striking similarities between the megalithic stone rings of Stonehenge and the Stone Circles of Western Canada imply to some that there may have been contact between Europe and North America far earlier than the Viking voyages to Newfoundland and Greenland.

Recently discovered giant stone circles in Siberia suggest an inter-continential connection across the Bering Strait land bridge after the most recent Ice Age.

Currently, these Stones remain an enigma.

    The swirling lighting effect in We Are One is gorgeous. When it is repeated in Spiritual consciousness, it makes me feel like being in that area, the consciousness would fall upon one sudden;y, like a waterfall.

    I’m very impressed with the power that is evident in these wonderful paintings! The intense background colors, bold and bright, and set the canvas aglow and are a wonderful contrast to the more subtle foreground colors.
    The artist has captured nature in his work, and should be commended for his talent! They are not just paintings, but they are also learning experiences when one takes the time to really study them. Excellent!

    I have never seen artwork like this before. The last painting was definitely my favorite. It looked like two paintings had been overlapped. Very cool.

    The “We are one” picture is so incredible! The background is really beautifully done and I interpret the picture as although the stones are different, they are still stones, and since they are piled in the shape of a person, I sort of interpret the picture has being symbolic and that we are all the same even though our appearances are different. The stones are still stones and humans are still humans, regardless of how they or we look. The other paintings are nice too, and really capture nature in an authentic way.

    Very powerful and very inspiring. The use of the auroras i found to be a fantastic idea, and something worth experimenting with in some of my future creations.

    Love the Stone Paintings!! Good placement of the stones, which creates a sense of guidance. Great use of color ( not too vibrant or dull).

  11. Robin says:

    These are beautiful. There is a sense of the sacred space. I really feel the spirit comes through. It would be wonderful to actually see them because I would suspect they send off their own energy.

    They all feel like they are moving. The spirit is moving through the painting and through me when I am looking at them. Rich. Vibrant. The colours are strong and powerful and I would love to see them in the flesh (so to speak).
    Thank you for sharing your gifts with the world.

    What lovely paintings. The first 3 especially appeal with their sense of distance. A delight to the eye.

    I love the first three pieces: Stone circle with raven, Stone circle I and Stone circle II. I enjoy light-bright artwork featuring natural settings. Hung on a wall at home, they bring a feeling of peace and calm.

    The stone circle paintings seem to capture a part of human history. They portray a mysterious air and provide a glimpse into early human history. My personal favorite is stone circle spring

    I’m in awe. I’ve been living in the Baque Pyrenees for a couple of years, and my garden had these stone circles called “huts”. When I sat on one of them in the sun, my body trembled in such a way I thought it would burst into pieces. Your stones are a reminder of all the guardian stones I’ve seen in the world. You’re decidedly a gifted messenger of the past which is poured into our present and into Infinity. I couldn’t be happier to have come across your magical work.
    Bravo!
    Daniela
