Louder Noise on the Walls

Amos Paul Kennedy Jr., a renowned letterpress printer based in Detroit, has a new solo show, Louder Noise on the Walls.

Known for his uniform of a pink shirt and overalls and his provocative political and racial commentary, Kennedy, the proprietor of Kennedy Prints! abandoned his career as a computer programmer to become a printmaker at the age of 40. He has been producing personal and commissioned prints ever since. He also travels the country spreading his philosophies about life and the art of printmaking. The artist's current project is the construction of a printing plant in Detroit for anyone interested in letterpress printing, bookbinding and paper making.

A self-proclaimed "humble Negro printer," Kennedy is known for his controversial sense of humor and radical philosophies on the American consciousness. His work pushes the boundaries of society, raises questions about the status quo and forces viewers to seek the depth beyond his prints.

He received his master of fine arts from the University of Wisconsin and his work is on display at museums and galleries across the U.S. and Europe. Kennedy was also featured in the 2008 documentary Proceed and Be Bold! by Laura Zinger.

A selection of Kennedy's prints are on display at The Compound Gallery until Sunday, March 15, 2020. The Compound Gallery is open Wednesday through Sunday 12-7pm.
