Keith Haynes is an English artist born in London in 1963.
He graduated with honors from Harrow College with a B.A. in Graphic Information Design and went on to work as a designer and then director at the BBC, where his work has been among the most influential art and music programs of the last twenty years.
Inspired by Jamie Reid and Ray Lowry, Keith’s work is a playful and often nostalgic exploration of popular culture from its past to the present. Keith’s work is notable for his interesting choice of materials, creating “messy” works composed of pins, CDs or vinyl records. Bright and dynamic artworks created using a precious collection of vinyl records reworked in pop culture colors. From iconic graphic portraits to meaningful lyrical songs, each piece is created from original vinyl records chosen to highlight the subject of the work, considered to be of equal importance with the object in Keith Haynes’ work.
His work is currently exhibited in the UK and internationally in private collections in Europe, the USA, Hong Kong and Singapore.
