About Kenneth Siemens

Represented Artist

Kenneth Siemens is a Bentonville based muralist and illustrator who works in the “Aerosol Pulp” comic style of art rendered in spray paint on canvas. Since 2014 Siemens has brought his experience as a Walmart marketing design director to bear on the creative community burgeoning in Northwest Arkansas. In addition to painting murals in downtown Bentonville, he participated in the “Ghostbusters” exhibit that was showcased during the Bentonville Film Festival in 2017.

I grew up devouring comics. I fell in love with the medium and it inspired me to draw and draw. Throughout my life and career I’ve been fascinated with what it takes to create a comic book; the layout, blue- line sketching, pencil work, inking, coloring and the warmth of the printing techniques. The characters I was drawn to were always the monsters and the villains, the detail and mood conveyed by those darker characters as they moved through the panels.

I recently did a series celebrating the Villains of the Marvel film universe and translating those villains into 4-color printed versions of themselves. As an artist I’ve often struggled with the narrative behind the imagery. It often comes to life as the piece comes alive. Born a spark, a flash of image insistent to be made real.
