Kelly, Kevin

Kevin Andrew Kelly, aka Rossfett, is a Brooklyn-based graphic designer and illustrator who has been keeping planted tanks since 2003. A former skatepunk turned mad scientist, Kevin’s dual curiosities of both left and right brain led to his completion of degrees in Chemistry as well as Art History & Communication Design. Since graduating from the Pratt Institute in 2007, he has spent 10 years providing creative and engaging visual design solutions for clients across the spectrum—from non-profit to high fashion. Aquascape design and installation represents the ultimate mix of Kevin’s obsessions—the perfect balance of art & science. To this end, he created Brooklyn Hardscape as a dedicated aquascaping competition group and small business, and is the recent founder of Aquadesign Alliance, a Tri state regional club focusing on aquascaping design. Aquadesign Alliance’s mission is to further the art and craft of aquascaping and design in planted tanks, and to expand the information available on the subject. When he’s not elbow deep in substrate, you can find him flinging paint at canvas, both digital and physical. Programs: Light, Color, and Art Theory in Aquascaping Aquarium Plants and Lighting Lighting
