Biography Ken Ratner
The following information was submitted by the artist, July 2013.
Ken Ratner was born in New York City in 1953 and lived in Texas and California before returning to the city in the mid-90s. From an early age, he began to draw, focusing on portraits, but later street life and the urban poor would become his primary subject matter in both his drawing and photography. He took evening sketch classes at the Art Students League in New York City in the 1980s, and would regularly study artwork and photographs in museums, galleries and art books.
