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
Thank you Ms. Wall! You were a delight to work with, and I am overwhelmed with your gratitude. I'm so glad that this portrait will bring you and your family joy for generations.

Evan, you are driving me nuts, as well; you're getting my favorite pieces, before I can show them to anyone else. Let me know when my suite is ready; it is time for you to get an aerial portrait.
Warren I am really getting to despise you. You just posted a new painting that I must have. We are getting to the point where you should just move in here and cover all of my walls!!!
Thank you, Mr. Flaschen for your wonderfully crafted comments and for becoming an avid collector of my work. Your words have really summed up very succinctly and thoughtfully what I am intending to achieve with each painting.

Thank you, Darleneweir. I appreciate that.
This artist talk took place at Gallery 825 during my October solo show. In the video, I discuss how I get my ideas and my painting process. There is also some video of the opening reception.
Thank you! I'm glad that you're enjoying the painting. Thank you for your support and buying from Ugallery.
Thank you so much, Jwoodrome! When I saw this couple from my balcony, I knew this Paris scene had to be painted.
The smoking Parisians look so much like my sister and her husband, who lived in Paris for several years. I hope that me or someone in my family can buy this someday when we can budget the funds. It is an awesome work!
Thank you for your message, Nance. I have this large piece, depicting an older couple: http://www.ugallery.com/oil-painting-paris-couple-in-orange-and-blue Also, I have reference of many old couples from which I can make a commissioned painting. Let me know your preferred size, and I can come up with something for you.
I'm looking for a piece with an old man and woman.
This painting which I have named "Michael's Special Day" captures a moment in time which my son & I treasure. We love it. Michael has hung this painting near another one Warren Keating did which is a large orange umbrella. Thank you for your artistic creation and making a rainy day become a lasting memory. Carol
