Kane One of Graffiti Institute
Kane One, one of the nation’s premier muralists, has emerged at the top of the street art and graffiti art movement that has taken marketing, private collectors, and education by storm. Born and raised in Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood, Kane has created massive installations and artwork throughout Chicago and the nation with messages of cultural heritage, education, beauty, and a plethora of other themes. In addition, Kane has created The Graffiti Institute, a non-profit dedicated to teaching the history, skills, and techniques associated with this prolific and ancient art form. Kane has had group and solo exhibits, commissions, and speaking engagements from The School of the Art Institute, The National Museum of Mexican Art, The Floating Museum, The Taste of Chicago, Art Expo, and The University of Chicago, and currently holds a bachelor’s degree in painting and a master’s degree in education. Kane One’s practice includes painting, installation, DJing, and urban interventions that aim to blur the line between art and urban culture.
Kane works as an artist, curator, educator, & athlete, and his projects aim to kindle possibilities for individual & communal reflection.
