     Kanow is a visual, kinetic artist living and working in Telluride. Kanow creates dynamic and contemplative works using paint and mixed media – including acrylics, oils, canvas, wood, plexiglass, and various non-traditional tools. Kanow’s muses are the people in his life, such as his family and students, and he embraces Asian philosophical and spiritual concepts in his creative process, such as detachment, impermanence, creation and destruction, and beautiful imperfection.       When he is interacting with and producing an artwork, Kanow has an energy-invested and dynamic practice – sometimes elevated and physically demanding, and other times deeply grounded and spiritual.

Beautiful open spaces, my family, my friends, and my students are my muses that inspire me to  create art. 


I love painting, drawing, and mixed media sculpture. Oil painting with brushes, knives and non-traditional tools plus drawing with charcoal are my main means of creative 2-dimensional expression. I also enjoy working with wax, metal, and clay.
