Graphic contemporary artist Kestin Cornwall believes sports and art help to create a community, bringing people together as fans, on teams, in running groups and as workout partners. He is also interested in the theory of epigenetic inheritance: the idea that environmental factors can affect the genes of children. Cornwall realizes there are positive and negative implications, and points out we must be sure we use them to bridge gaps and start conversations. Cornwall feels we need to push our collective consciousness toward a more positive, bright and inclusive future.
The Yogen Früz Pinkberry Brain Project brings attention to the importance of physical and mental health. Cornwall believes it is the duty of an artist to add beauty to the world while invoking the unending social responsibility of capturing thought. His work looks to a vibrant, diverse, loving and healthier future for this generation and those to come.

Over the past 10 years, Cornwall has focused on creating relevant progressive art. He enjoys challenging what’s considered “common” and feels it is the duty of an artist to add beauty to the world while invoking the unending social responsibility to capture thought.
