Somewhere on a bridge or a hotel balcony, you'll find Warren Keating capturing video of unsuspecting figures walking below. Later, in a studio in Santa Fe he feverishly painting, covering large canvases with thick paint depicting an overhead view of a walking figure in an urban setting.

Keating’s work invites you to celebrate the moment using the perspective of a camera with the subtlety of light and color that can only be captured with oil on canvas.
 

Somewhere on a bridge or a hotel balcony, you'll find Warren Keating capturing video of unsuspecting figures walking below. Later, in a studio in Santa Fe, you can find him pouring through frame after frame of the video footage to find the perfect moment of weight shift, swing of the arm or tilt of the head, which he feverishly paints, covering large canvases with thick paint depicting an overhead view of a walking figure in an urban setting. His work invites you to celebrate the moment using the perspective of a camera with the subtlety of light and color that can only be captured with oil on canvas. His signature “Pixel Impressionism” brush strokes create the motion and details of the walking figure and communicate Keating’s passion for the subject.

Born in New Orleans in 1965, Keating’s work now reflects the culmination of
25 years of painting both the figure and the landscape. He has had numerous solo shows of his paintings in the U.S. and Mexico, has sold hundreds of paintings through the internet to collectors around the world. He has been in juried shows at the University of Southern Mississippi, Otis College, Los Angeles, Ventura College, Orange County Center For Contemporary Art, Long Beach Arts, TAG Santa Monica and Gallery 825 in Los Angeles.

 

A solo show of Keating’s latest series, Overview, was selected as an LA Times Calendar pick. An interview with Keating about this series was featured on both CNN and KTLA in Los Angeles. His work has been featured in the LA Times, Daily News, The Huffington Post, Santa Fe Reporter, Pasatiempo, and the Santa Fean. He is represented by ViVO Contemporary in Santa Fe.
