Pronounced “kwah,” KWA is an abstract filmmaker, social, economic and political science researcher and truth seeker, ambient & electric sound musician and avant-garde artist.
Inspired in his early twenties by some of the pioneering and most influential abstract and experimental musicians, artist and filmmakers of the 20th century, KWA started making his own films and soundtracks while attending Indiana University. KWA’s intriguing and multi-dimensional bodies of works are designed to force a shift in a viewer’s perceptions of the world around them. His works transcend the physical world and expand our visual and auditory senses exposing a wider sense of what is residing in our conscious mind, yet resonates within the shadows of our collective subconscious. Once discovered, it encourages a re-examination of one’s perspective of the world and their place within it.
KWA obtained a B.S. degree in Sociology from Indiana University and as an artist and entrepreneur started his first successful business venture directly out of college. He later became a successful global IT enterprise sales executive to help fund his filmmaking as he matured his skills and artistic creations. Through his art and business background he has had success in reaching thousands of patrons for many years as part of a residency at the Murphy Art Center in Fountain Square.
KWA ended his residency and film exhibitions in 2014 to focus on print making and released his first fine giclée prints extracted from his films in the fall of 2016. His works have been on display in public exhibitions, private businesses, restaurants and home collections across Indiana. KWA is the resident artist and creative partner at High Frequency Arts.
