About the artist
Keith Coventry’s work deals with urban decay and social issues, often using pure abstract geometric shapes recalling the work of the early 20th century Modernist painters. For example, as shown his portfolio Copper + Silk, Modernists idealized the tower blocks and highways of the metropolis, Coventry’s approach is ironic and ambiguous. His prints collide their Utopian vision of modern urban life - as exemplified by post-war housing-estates - with the social problems that result from living in such an environment. The Estate etchings derive from the directional maps found in high-rise estates across London, while the Junk silk-screens deconstruct a fast food logo to a series of elegant arcs and chevrons. The compositions are taken from crushed packs that the artist picked up when walking around London. Coventry studied Fine Art at Brighton Polytechnic - now the Faculty of Arts (University of Brighton) - from 1978 to 1981 followed by an MA at Chelsea School of Art, graduating in 1982. Coventry's work features in many public collections, including the Tate Modern, London and The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York.
