Kean O’Brien was raised in Chicago and attended SAIC for his undergraduate studies. After completing his MFA at CalArts in photography and Media in 2011 he co-founded an artist run space in East Los Angeles, Concord. After his adventure with the Concord project he pursued his desires to be an educator again. Kean’s work is about community building through art practices, deconstructing and reconstructing masculinity, queerness, binary systems of oppression, and the construction of identification.
