My work intends to inspire the viewer to appreciate and find joy in the seemingly insignificant moments. This painting was inspired by my aerial view of a boy playing in an oversized ball pit at The City Museum in St. Louis. Using my signature Pixel Impressionism style to render the movement of the figure and the immediacy of the moment, I created a contemporary version of an Impressionistic figure painting. The painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished white edges. It comes varnished and ready to hang.

Getting to Know Warren

Warren Keating''s paintings start with documentation. He captures subjects on video from birds-eye views, digitizes the film on his computer and, finally, paints them on canvas in an active style he describes as Pixel Impressionism. He merges artistic elements of the 20th Century with 21st Century technology. Warren credits Futurism as well as Richard Diebenkorn and Willem de Kooning as influences in his paintings. Fun fact: Warren’s inspiration for this series came from a vacation to Paris where he photographed passersby from his hotel balcony in Saint-Germain-des-Prés.
