Steve Keene is the most prolific American painter of all time, producing more than 300,000 hand-painted works via his studio/chainlink fence cage where he paints more than 50 paintings at a time.
Known for his voluminous affordable art, as well as being the indie rock art collaborator to Pavement, The Apples in stereo, Will Oldham, and David Berman/Silver Jews, Keene has long been under appreciated. The Steve Keene Art Book*—originally conceived during his sold out show at Shepard Fairey's LA Gallery Subliminal Projects in 2016—is the first art book dedicated exclusively to his work.
“Steve Keene is a legend.” —LA Weekly
"Assembly-line Picasso; a painter churns out product, and the art world reels.” —Time
“A massively dazzling celebration of fandom as an art form—playful, affectionate, slightly unhinged.” —Rolling Stone
“Whether they realize it or not, most rock fans of the past 20-odd years, especially indie rock fans, already know the work of artist Steve Keene.” —Variety
Steve Keene is a Brooklyn-based multi-media artist who has showcased his work internationally. His unique focus includes hand-painted multiples, wood sculpture, and tattooed plywood.
