Artist of the moment………Keith Coventry


Keith Coventry is a British artist renown or his abstract works. Keith Coventry was born in Burnley, England in the year 1958.

Coventry attended the Chelsea School of Art located in London, England. He also attended Brighton Polytech.

The artist is a past winner of the John Moore prize and received $25,000. This award is given every two years to the best contemporary painting. In this awesome clip we view the artist right after winning this prestigious award:

Here Coventry goes into further detail on a very popular series of prints he made of crack pipes:

Coventry is part of many prominent collections including the Tate Museum of London, England and the Museum of Modern Art located in New York City.

The artist says his work is a combination of art history and social issues.

price range information: The artist works mainly in oils with prices range from $10,000 to $80,000. He has done a few print editions, but on a small scale with not enough pricing available to form a schedule.

I enjoy the minimalist and abstract qualities found in Coventry’s art. I am sure Piet Mondrian is smiling when he sees the work of this modern artist!
