Kevin “Chasing Wolf” Hutchins is a self taught artist born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee. During his formative years his artistic development began with drawing comic book heroes, album covers and the occasional Elvis Presley rendering for his mother. As an adult, he felt compelled to explore spiritually and find answers to questions that were prompted by a childhood experience. This eventually led to a move to Arizona in 1996. There he began studying Native American spirituality with a Native teacher, participating in sweat lodges, humblecias (vision quests) and other ceremonies. As his experience with life deepened he made a commitment to express his life’s journey through painting.
In 2012, after two decades of pursuing and painting expressions of his spiritual quest, he returned to Memphis to focus on a career as an artist. Within the first few months his art was being displayed locally. He then accepted a challenging commission from a main collector of his work to do an 86’x16’ mural on an outside brick wall near downtown Memphis. The massive undertaking took over six months to complete.
