Keith Haynes (London 1963 - )


About

Keith Haynes was born in 1963, he has lived and worked in London for his entire life. Haynes’ work is a playful and often nostalgic exploration of popular culture, and in particular, popular music culture from his past to the present day. Keith’s work is noteworthy for his interesting choice of materials, creating works from the ‘clutter’ of pop culture - button badges, CDs or, more uniquely, vinyl records. Whether it’s a graphically iconic portrait or a meaningful song lyric, each piece is created from original vinyl records chosen to enhance the subject matter, Haynes considers the subject and the object to be of equal importance within his practice.
On leaving Harrow College with a BA(hons) Haynes worked as a designer and director at the BBC where his work featured in some of the most influential music and arts programmes of the past 20 years. In 1993 a selection of his video work was included in an exhibition of experimental and avant-garde television design held at the ICA.
Haynes’ current work has been exhibited extensively in the UK and abroad and can be found in private collections in Europe, America, Hong Kong and Singapore.
