Artist

Ken Fury
CURATOR
LOCATION:NYC
Ken Fury, originally from Colorado, moved to New York City in 2005 and began working in theater and as a street performer, while simultaneously traveling abroad to compete and judge in b-boy (breakdance) competitions.  He has won over thirty of the top dance competitions and has had the honor to
judge some of the largest dance events worldwide. He has choreographed and performed in films and commercials including, Starburst, Toshiba, I love New York, Blender's Pride, K-Swiss, the Netflix series The Get Down, and many other independent projects.    As an educator, he has worked in dance studios and schools in his community along with working as an adjunct professor teaching dance and movement at New York University's TISH School of the Arts in the Experimental Theatre Wing, and the Seoul Institute of the Arts in South Korea. He has also worked as a cultural ambassador with the U.S. Department of State and U.S. Embassy programs Next Level, where he traveled to Zimbabwe, Africa, and the YES Academy ASEAN program hosted at The Jakarta Institute of the Arts, in Jakarta, Indonesia, using art and dance as a tool for conflict prevention, cultural exchange, and teaching entrepreneurship skills.   In 2010, he ventured into music. The intertwining of his poetry, painting, and dance form his musical style. Without any prior musical training, he felt he was free from strict technicalities and rigid forms. This allowed him to experiment freely. Two years later he released his first album "Flowers Fall Asleep" and his second album "Moonlight Bloom" which followed in 2013. Shortly after, he created his solo performance, which drew upon his background in theater and dance. It debuted at the music venue The Bowery Electric in New York City, followed by a local tour. Additionally, he has performed at Central Park summer stage, Kennedy Center and the Smithsonian in Washington D.C.     After two years of intense production, in 2016, he released his art collection “The Cry of Nature’s Birth". The self-produced collection includes his third album, book, fine art prints, jewelry sculptures and short films.
