A maze is a complicated and confusing system of connected passages, which Kenton equates to life. "My art depicts struggle, happiness, and power through layered painting in maze imagery. I believe that each path has a maze, and no matter how difficult, the maze can be conquered. My goal is to create work that integrates representation of different cultures and has the ability to touch everyone," explained the artist.

Kenton is known for his unique paintings and art merchandise, his style is influenced by pop culture, fashion, music and the iconography of the modern popular culture transmitted through mass media and aimed particularly at younger people.
