Biography

Ken Keeley is a photorealist who paints in a lucid style that somehow conveys the stark reality of the moment without any of the cold sterility of the genre. Keeley, famous for his newsstands and cityscapes, is hot on the new developments around Times Square with the strong Disney presence, which should give him fodder for a new updated series of paintings and is excited about his forthcoming pass to photograph the action on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. 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 oversize silkscreen editions and posters of Newsstands and Times Square, 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, Malcolm Forbes Public Museum, Reading Museum of Fine Art and Stoney Brook University, Long Island, New York.
