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 landscapes, primed for quiet contemplation and personal interpretation.

Ken’s work includes figurative and landscape painting and prints. These compositions excel at inviting the viewer to reflect on the interplay between nature and human impact, action and rest.  He sees his work as a personal visual experience for the viewer, an interchange between individual conscience and 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.
