Kenya Hanley

Kenya Hanley (b. 1975), one of LAND’s founding members, has devoted countless hours a day to assiduously drawing his two great loves: food and reggae musicians. Hanley's meticulously organized images, often color coded and labeled, pay homage to the food he grew up eating, the sweets he tries to stay away from, and the music he so lovingly listens to. Hanley has been featured in multiple Outsider Art Fairs in New York City, Belgium’s MADmusée, and Tokyo’s UTRECHT design store. His work has been the subject of an exhibition at the flagship J Crew store on Madison Avenue and has since become part of J Crew’s corporate collection. His art also figures prominently in The Museum of Everything in London, England. Hanley has been reviewed in VICE Magazine’s Creators Project series, Art Forum and Disparate Minds. In 2017, Hanley’s work was featured in his first book, Tasty Reggae, published by All-You-Can-Eat Press. 

Kenya Hanley’s artwork is available for sale through NAP Projects. View his available work on Artsy.
