New Steve Keene

September 30, 2010 at 5:34 am Leave a comment

Since High School, I’ve really enjoyed the work of Brooklyn-based painter Steve Keene. Luckily, he works cheaply so he can sell his work cheaply, and I’ve been able to accumulate a few. The first one I bought is a simple square foot piece of plywood painted to look like the cover of Daft Punk’s album “Discovery.” After that I bought 15 from his website, not knowing what I would be receiving. That first group was also thin plywood, all about 2′ by 1′, either landscape or portrait.

Recently, in a fit of celebration, I bought eleven more. This new group is made out of thicker board and cut at strange angles. There is more color, but the style remains distinct — loose and frenetic. Here, in this post, are my eight favorite of the new set (the ones hanging up right now).

Oh and for those keeping track, I gave away five to my friend Andrew… so I should have 22 now.
