About Me

Hi World!

I'M KEVIN FRIEND. I CREATE UNDER THE NAME ARevolt64

I spent the first 24 years of my life in Akron,Ohio. I attended St.Hilary, St.Vincent St.Mary and earned a finance degree from the University of Akron.  I took photography at St.Vincent St.Mary from Earl Emery. We are still friends. He has been a great teacher, mentor and inspiration for all the work I do. I lived in Chicago near Wrigley Field for 23 years. Great city. Got my MBA from the University of Chicago. I have three beautiful daughters, and an ex-wife from my time there. Having daughters profoundly changed me as a man. Looking at the world though their eyes has made me into a vehement supporter of women’s rights and the need for equality.  I have been back in Akron since 2011. I love living next to a National Park. I traveled a lot for my job. I took lots of photos while walking hundreds of miles in the places and cities I visited. I have had the privilege of seeing many beautiful locations across the world, but I will contend that Akron with its Cuyahoga Valley National Park backdrop is one of the most beautiful. I try to spend as much of my free time as possible on photography and creating art.  In 2018 I created a mural I called Unify:The Verb. It is an image and language that is meant to force viewers to consider the concepts of Peace, Love and Equality. I have 6 of these murals spread out across the city of Akron. I intend to keep spreading the Unify image and message just in case seeing it and reading it is the catalyst for that person to decide to be kind, join the Circle of Good and become an ARevolT with me. ARevolT is my unique combination of the words art + love. My goal is to live each my art with love for the benefit of others.  

My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.



Inspiration

I did not think I was an artist until I was 48 and was encouraged by my friend who was an artist his whole life. He validated my work and inspired me to start creating art for others. My intent is to create images that transport the viewer. The more time you spend with my images the more you discover. 

Techniques

I am a photographer. All my photos are taken on an iPhone. My technique is to walk everywhere and take photos of anything that catches my eye. I then will manipulate individual images or will take all the images from a place or city and create a collage that captures the my unique version of that place or city. 

career highlights

Held my first exhibition in 2021 at the Nervous Dog Cafe and Gallery in Akron. I have 4 shows scheduled for 2022-23. The exhibit this May at the White Rabbit Galleries in Barberton, Ohio will be my first true gallery show.
