Keith Hollander was born and raised in New York and began creating artwork at a very young age. His first formal studies in art were at New York City’s School of Visual Arts where he further developed his relationship with surrealism. Before making his home in San Francisco in 1997, Keith traveled the mountainous regions of the United States seeking inspiration from the landscape and people around. His unique, surrealist style of painting has been exhibited at galleries and exhibits throughout the Bay Area. Keith received the city’s Public Mural Award for his large-scale mural, entitled “Joyous Discoveries,” that overlooked Market Street. In addition to his notoriety in surrealist imagery, Keith has received notice for his newer style, “graphic abstraction.” Keith considers his creativity to be a tool to educate, provoke, and stimulate the human spirit and the senses.
