Duane Keiser (1966-)
Duane Keiser studied painting under Raymond Berry at Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Virginia and Lennart Anderson at Brooklyn College in NYC. His "A Painting a Day" blog has been written about in numerous publications, including USA Today, The New York Times and The Huffington Post. He realized in the early 2000’s that the internet would be an important tool for artists, and took advantage of the fact that not many fine artists were using it as a resource.
Using a makeshift easel made from a cigar box, he makes a postcard-sized painting each day and posts them to his blog where collectors can bid on them via eBay. Keiser painted a painting a day for over a year, even on the holidays and sick days. The project is ongoing, but not on a daily basis. He has sold these paintings anywhere from $80-$1,500. He is also known for his "painted animations." A modern take on the still life, these videos combine traditional painting, animation, and time-lapse.
He has exhibited at Fischbach Gallery, Allan Stone Gallery and, most recently, the New York Academy of Art. His work resides in several corporate collections and thousands of private collections worldwide, including the Gregory Peterson Collection.
He currently lives and works in Richmond, VA
