Kelly Keith recieved her B.F.A at Wintrhop University in Rock Hill, South Carolina in 2003 and has since become a North Carolina - based painter who creates psychedelic technicolor paintings based on visions and casual scenarios. Seventies children’s books, vintage pulp magazines, vinyl records covers, her comrades, painted mass produced ceramic objects (that one can find in Mexico), the Universe, WKRP in Cincinnati and dimethyltryptamine are all considered to be influences in her work. Heavy traveling and frightening visits from the “Hag” during sleep paralysis have also been important sources of imagery for Kelly.
She has shown her work primarily in Charlotte, North Carolina at both Genome and Gallery Twenty-Two located in Plaza Midwood- Charlotte’s most diverse, ecclectic, and alchoholic hood. She has most recently been commissioned to paint covers of 2012 LP releases for bands such as Monstro (Vagrant) and Dan Sartain (Swami.) Her work has been spotted on art/pop culture online publications Lost at E Minor and Juxtapoz.com
