Mosaic: the many become one.

Mosaics are evocative of my diverse career as an artist: photographer, cabinet maker, antique restorer, musician, and framer of art. My stained glass mosaics tell the story of the 50 year journey that is my life calling.

My challenge is to get the most out of the glass in order to honestly represent my vision. I select and cut glass in a way that makes it flow like a painting. My style of glass mosaic is organic and narrative. I am most often drawn to people, however landscapes mosaics tell a story I sometimes feel compelled to express.

Ken Wright grew up in a fertile and creative environment where he was positively influenced by his grandfather who handcrafted furniture and an uncle who was a photographer and painter. His father customized and handmade women's shoes. He highly regards tools and precision, yet creates graceful stained and fused glass mosaics. Eschewing gentle pastels in favor of a bold and brilliant palate, Ken's glass images are urban, figurative, and narrative.

A native of Bedford Stuyvesant Brooklyn, Ken's first art medium was photography. Ken's exhibition credits include Savacou Gallery and the Office of the Manhattan Borough President in NYC and the BedfordStuyvesant Restoration Corporation. Zakiya Art Gallery and SONYA in Brooklyn, NY. He created a stained glass mask for the Mocada Museum's masquerade ball. He is an active member of the National Conference of Artists, Nurtureart and Black Art In America. He is also a master framer and conservationist working with the most outstanding African-American Artists in New York City. He was invited to sit on the dais for the Dedicators 6th Celebration of Black Artists Scholarship Fund Luncheon.
