Please email the gallery to be notified when new work by Ken Hildebrand arrives.
Ken's spiritually and emotionally charged works in gouache, are inspired by his Mennonite background, his architectural studies and his spiritual teachings.
Ken's art started with a gift. A journey that began in 1999, led him to discover a creative energy he could no longer deny.
A man… with a rich Mennonite heritage…a heritage, carved from an ancestral history of persecution and fleeing in the night
A man… whose spirit is deeply rooted in the blacklands of Manitoba…the blacklands that beckoned his people
A man… with a great love for the Canadian north…a land of lakes, forests and granite rock…deep, and full of mystery
A student… of ancient teachings…teachings of universal truth, as told by the voices of the Elders
A student… of the Modern Architectural Movement…a movement with its simple mantra, “less is more”
A man… who is traditional…yet at the same time contemporary
A man… who is an ordinary workman…privileged to hold the brush and the pen, while the creative Artesian well gently gushes forth its riches
A man… who is a grateful man…grateful for a gift that has finally awoken from its half-century sleep
