CK Contemporary represents the very best in contemporary domestic and international artists working across a broad range of styles and media. While realism and representational art has long been the focus of the gallery, we continue to showcase artists whose distinctive points of view set them apart within genres as far ranging as abstraction to still life.  

Located at 357 Geary Street in San Francisco’s historic Union Square, CK Contemporary is committed to new and experienced collectors who desire a skillful steward in the acquisition of paintings, drawings, and sculpture that are both timeless and unique.  

Artist ( Description ): 

Artist Jeffrey Palladini was born in the Chicago area, and grew up in Southern California. He studied Art at California State University, Long Beach, where he explored a wide variety of media, eventually gravitating toward drawing and painting. It wasn't until his studies in Florence, Italy in 1989 that he began to form a consistent creative voice. The ubiquitous beauty of art in everyday life in Italy had a profound effect on the young artist, and he began to experiment with combining the found objects and classical figurative imagery he found everywhere around him. From that time, Palladini has considered canvas simply too passive, and has continued to employ wood almost exclusively as the ground for his paintings.

In 1991, Palladini relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area, where he lives and works along with his wife and daughter. He continues to develop his unique vocabulary of dramatic imagery. Palladini has exhibited his work around the U.S. and the world for over twenty-five years. His work is included in numerous private and corporate collections. Most recently, Palladini was honored with an SFMOMA SECA Award nomination, and was named one of San Francisco's Top 20 Artists.
