Keith Haynes: London Goes Pop
Born in London, Keith's work is a playful and often-nostalgic exploration of popular culture, and in particular, popular music culture from his past to the present day. Keith's work is noteworthy for his interesting choice of materials, creating works from the 'clutter' of pop culture - button badges, CD's or, more uniquely, vinyl records. Whether it's a graphically iconic portrait or a meaningful song lyric, each piece is created from original vinyl records chosen to enhance the subject matter; in these works the Subject and the Object are of equal importance.
"My introduction to art was through the graphic design of people like Jamie Reid and Ray Lowry which I collected on record sleeves, t-shirts and badges. These were the people that inspired me to go to art school". On leaving Harrow Art School with a BA (hons) Keith worked as a designer and director at the BBC, where his work featured in some of the most influential music and arts programmes of the past 20 years and his video work was included in an exhibition of experimental and avant-garde television design held at the ICA.
His current work has been exhibited extensively in the UK and overseas and can be found in private collections in the UK, Europe, America, Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia.
