Kevin began what would become Kevin O’Brien Studio twenty years ago in a drafty old barn. However, as his business has grown he has developed a great knack for hiring talented artists and designers. The KOB team consists of a diverse group of strong-minded creative people, most of whom completed their college educations at surrounding art schools, including the Philadelphia Academy of Fine Arts, Moore College of Art and Design, and the Art Institute of Philadelphia.
As a painter, Kevin’s goals are to add beauty to the world and meaning to his own life. Kevin believes that “with beauty and meaning, inspiration comes naturally, often, and from everywhere”, so it was a natural transition when he made the switch from traditional painting to textiles.
Kevin O’Brien employs a studio of artists who help create some of the most elegantly unique, plush and beautiful textiles in the industry. The design, print, paint and design all of their textiles in one location. Everything is cut and sewn there, too. So, not only is everything made in the USA, it is produced under one roof! Everyone from NYC art lovers to interior designers are wild about his beautiful artistry, and his following continues to grow among those that appreciate the finest fibers, handmade craftsmanship, and dynamic design sense.
