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 through photography and etching, Spencer sees the home as a place to unearth past memories, while questioning 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 The New Gallery, VIVIANEART and The Orillia Museum of Art & History (OMAH). He currently works in construction as a Surveyor’s Assistant in his hometown of Lethbridge, AB, while renovating his garage to house a small unnamed printmaking studio.
