KENNETH ANDRES REID BIO From brochure of "Ken Reid's One Man Show" at Collam Studio Gallery, Sherman Oaks, CA. Kenneth Reid is an artist of many dimensions, his scope of involvement in the arts extending far beyond his immediate environment. Born in Montevideo, Uruguay, art was his great love from early boyhood. He studied at the Institute of Fine Arts, Santiago, Chile, Louisiana State University and Chon nard Art Institute in Los Angeles. World War IT took him to the Pacific Theatre as a combat artist. Artist Reid's paintings reflect his deep empathy with people, his favorite subject. Yet, he is intrigued by man-made phenomena, as shown in his freeway paintings, and other familiar subjects. The local scene, as it changes, fascinates him. Kenneth's inborn artistic sense moves gracefully through various stages of reaction, perhaps tradition-ally, or realistically, then to the abstract or avant-garde. As he explains it, "A natural evolvement from sameness." His flair for design, discerning eye and masterful use of color have gained recognition and acclaim in galleries of 15 private collectors. Since 1945, he has worked as an Art Director for films and television. He was nominated for an Oscar as Art Director of the film, "Facts of Life" starring Lucille Ball and Bob Hope. He was honored for his work in the Emmy award-winning comedy series starring Dick Van Dyke and Mary Tyler Moore. His talents have been employed in TV series of Danny Thomas, Andy Griffith, Gomer Pyle, Rock Hudson and others. He is currently Art Director for the Mary Tyler Moore Company. He has won purchase awards from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Fine Arts Gallery in Honolulu. Whether at the CBS Studio Center, or on location in different parts of the world, he clears his weekends to paint life as he sees it or feels it at the moment.
