In 1956, Kevin S. Merigian, M.D. was born to a lower middle class working family in the inner-city of Detroit,Michigan. For the most part, he and his brother and sister were raised by their grandmother and father in a small home in the impoverished city of Highland Park, Michigan.His true academic journey began with a scholarship to a suburban college preparatory high school in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. The educational community was named Cranbrook. He excelled in the arts and sciences and matriculated to Kalamazoo College for undergraduate studies. He was accepted to the College of Human Medicine, Michigan State University in his senior year of college. He ultimately graduated from Michigan State in 1982 with an M.D. degree. At age 37 years-old, he became the founding Chairman of Emergency Medicine, University of Tennessee, Memphis.

However, his passion was always the creative arts. At one time, every patient who visited him as a physician in his clinic, received a hand painted thank you card for their patronage. Throughout the years, he devoted much of his free time to writing short stories, poetry, painting and sculpting. Currently, he has painted over 400 works, he has written over 250 poems and has created over 150 sculptures in wood, bronze, stone and steel. He has had both formal and informal training in pottery, sculpture, and drawing. He has shown his works in a number of Memphis venues. The Germantown Performing Arts Center exposition was his second solo show in Memphis. These works are representative of his most recent acrylic abstracts. His current style of painting is a refined form of expression using bright, bold colors and syringes as the paint applicators. The goal of each work of art is to explore the unforeseen harmonies of color as they seek to find settlement, just as each of us attempts to find answers to the emotional, metaphysical and physical forces in our lives. In each expression, there are no forced arrangements. Those who view these works will inspect the overall projection with an emphasis on each detail that contributes to the whole. The holonistic structures of nature are well-represented. Observers draw upon their personal experiences to interpret the art in whatever capacity is available to them. Their findings and conclusions will reflect their own internal forces that create their personal harmony. It will not be that of the artist.
