Ken Hilker Artist.jpg

Kenneth Hilker is a contemporary artist living and working in Baltimore, MD. Ken uses innovative compositions and uniquely proportioned canvases to create complex and layered paintings , primed for quiet contemplation and personal interpretation.

Ken's work includes abstract, figurative and landscape painting and prints. These compositions invite the viewer to reflect on the interplay between nature and human impact, action and rest.  His work seeks to create a personal visual experience for the viewer, an interchange between the individual conscience and our collective identity.

Ken was born in St. Louis, Missouri and graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art. He lives with his wife Erica, and their daughter Dora in the Federal Hill neighborhood of Baltimore Maryland.
