Kevin Müller Cisneros (Lima, Peru; 1992) emigrated, with his parents and sister, to the United States in 2003. 

 

He pursued his academic studies at the Grand Central Atelier (GCA), New York, where he spent four years studying empirical methods of drawing and seeing with an emphasis on the human figure and the physics of light. Following the completion of his studies in 2017, Müller spent a year working inside the studio of Jacob Collins, Director of the GCA and a leading figure in the contemporary revival of the classical tradition. This experience further encouraged Muller's engagement in a philosophy deeply linked to the practice of working from life. 

 

His work has been exhibited across New York and

forms part of private collections around the world. He has been a participant of the Hudson River Fellowship, and has received numerous awards, including those of the Grand Central Atelier, as well as the Salmagundi Club and the Alliance for Young Artists and Writers. As an instructor of the GCA, he is committed to sharing his passion for excellence and meditation through art. His teachings have led him to carry out workshops in Spain and Argentina, and Mexico.

 

Currently living in Brooklyn, NY, Müller continues to place an intimate appreciation of nature at the forefront of his aesthetic principles.
