Keith Athay [Biography]

Keith Athay

Keith has been a contemporary collage seascape and abstract artist for over 20 years. He studied at Bath College and University of South Wales. His work has been exhibited both in the UK and overseas, in particular: London, New York and The Hamptons, San Francisco, Hong Kong, Singapore and Melbourne.

His love of the sea has drawn him to Plymouth and is now a welcome resident artist at Ocean Studios.

He attaches collage materials such as sheet music, vintage maps, botanical diagrams and newspaper cuttings to large canvases and uses these as a background to his paintings. The viewer initially sees a coastal scene, often West Country fishing ports, and then on closer inspection finds a whole world of text and illustration lying beneath the paint layers.
