Keith Eager

Artist member since 2019
Toronto, Ontario

Keith studied fine arts in high school at Central Technical School, animation at Max The Mutt Animation School and earned a BFA in Printmaking at OCAD University. He recently undertook a drawing and painting mentorship at Kensington Art Academy. Keith has taught drawing, painting and cartooning, and has worked as a studio artist for Pix Ray VFX and Moss and Lam, both located in Toronto.

Keith's practice situates him in the role of artist as observer and storyteller. His work often draws on direct experience and memory. This artwork is influenced by the old masters, current events and popular culture alike. Keith is mostly concerned picture making, experimenting with art materials and creating the illusion of 3 dimensional space on a 2 dimensional surface.

Keith’s current work explores themes of destruction, masculinity and celebration. These themes are articulated through personal narratives and popular cultural narratives depicted in painting. The work initially emerged as a mining of memory, small moments of crisis and bliss. The works included fit within the broader scope of an unsettling, visceral, often photo based realism within contemporary painting.
