Kellen Spencer is an Alberta-based visual artist, and printmaker whose practice examines the connection between residential redevelopment, memory, and the notion of home. By documenting changes in the residential landscape, Spencer sees the home as a place to unearth past memories, and to question future cycles of housing demolition, construction, and gentrification.

In 2018, he completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Print Media at the Alberta College of Art + Design (ACAD), and was the recipient of the Board of Governor’s Graduating Student Award. His printed works have recently been included in group exhibitions at Mortar & BrickVIVIANEARTThe Orillia Museum of Art & History (OMAH), and the John B. Aird Gallery. He is currently creating a new series of etchings with support from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts, Visual Arts & New Media. Spencer works part-time as a Land Surveyor’s Assistant in and around his hometown, Lethbridge, Alberta.
