About the Artist: "Ken Keeley is kind of a lone wolf in the art world. He entered the world of commerce with signed cibachrome prints then moved on to the many over-size silkscreen editions and posters of Newsstands and Times Squares, 59 Street Bridge, Nathan's Famous and the Carnegie Deli, mostly rare and traded briskly on the secondary market. Many people get their impressions of New York City from a Ken Keeley rendition. Today, Keeley self-publishes his paintings in the giclee format. His works of art are held in public collections such as the Philadelphia Museum of Fine Art, Malcom Forbes Public Museum, Reading Museum of Fine Art and Stoney Brook University, Long Island, New York..." - Victor Forbes
During my extensive travels across the United States I settled in California and became enchanted with its extraordinary light and beauty.
For the last few years I have been drawing in color pencil, buildings in landscape settings, particularly university and wine related subjects. I have recently completed a series of 10 drawings of French Wine Villages and I am currently working on a similar series of California wineries. My drawings are developed from site sketches whenever possible and later completed in my studio.
My work has been commissioned for book illustrations, wine labels, packaging and greeting cards.
Both originals and prints of my work can be seen in private collections in both the United States and Europe.
