My work is intended to inspire you to find poetry in the everyday. This painting was inspired by my aerial view of bicyclists riding below the Santa Monica pier. I captured video of this 1/60th-of-a-second moment and then selected a still frame from the footage to use as reference. Using my signature Pixel Impressionist brushstrokes, I rendered the motion of the cyclist and my passion for the subject. This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished white edges. It comes varnished and ready to hang.

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.

I can't thank Warren Keating enough for this BEAUTIFUL painting. It all started with a photograph I took of my son on top of my husband's shoulders. I just fell in love with the photo, and I thought it would be a special gift to my husband to have it formalized in paint by a professional artist. I thought Warren Keating might be perfect for the job, and boy was he! He completely exceeded my expectations with this breathtaking piece. My husband was brought to tears when he received it. We'll cherish this painting, and we know one day our son will, too. Gifts don't get any better than that!- M Wall
Original. Simple. Elegant. Human. I now have four of Mr. Keating's paintings. Rave reviews from visitors. Enough said.- E Flaschen
