This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Ken Bowman was born in Denver, Colorado in 1937, and he began painting in 1957. His early work includes oils that he painted in Greece, where he spent three months as a guest of the Greek government. From 1958 to 1959, Bowman traveled throughout Europe and in parts of Africa, after which he attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts in 1963.

After graduation, he returned to Denver, where he briefly taught history of art in a commercial school before settling in New York City in 1964. Bowman had his first one-man show at the prominent Tibor de Nagy gallery on Manhattan’s East 57th Street in 1970, the same year that Rhino Horn was formed. He continued to show his work with that gallery for the remainder of the 1970s.
