Ted Keens is a self-taught American artist from Brooklyn, who defines his style as a revival of the contemporary icons.
His style is spontaneous and distinctive, emerging from the dynamics of society today,
allowing him to capture the immediate reality in a striking way.
Art and technology come together in his work, combining his oil painting skills with new digital techniques.
Meeting the artists of "Collectif27" has allowed him to extend his creative palette and develop a new style of spontaneous realism.
It is with the artist Jonathan Livingston Skybird, aka JLS, that his first hybrid works were born mixing oil painting & digital art.
This new concept was created in a highly contrasting universe inspired by works using the Chiaroscuro technique specific to Renaissance painters such as El Caravaggio and Rembrandt, combined with new technologies.
