"coLAB2: DECKED OUT" is STUDIO CENTRAL'S second collaborative experiment in our continued effort to "Live...Work...Share" with our extended creative community...
Grew up in the Southwest and belongs to the Northern Ute and Anishanabe Nations. Received a BFA in painting with a focus on silkscreen printing from the Institute of American Indian Arts in 2012. Throughout life Keith has been influenced to push his creative senses. The earliest influences come from his father who is a musician, traveling and exposing him to contemporary Native arts at a young age. These early experiences would influence a life in fine arts. Finding a balance between contemporary life and tradition, Keith creates a blend of images, prints, paintings, and murals derived from oral storytelling, skateboarding, and native America to communicate his work. Looking up to great artist before him, making art for people, himself, and those he loves.
Keith currently works and lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Originally from Oklahoma, Walker is a sculptor and painter who has balanced a career in the museum field for over ten years. August currently works and lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico and is completing his BFA at the Institute of American Indian Arts with an emphasis in sculpture within the Studio Arts program.
