Keith Piper is a British artist and academic. In addition to his work as a visual artist, he has worked as a curator, writer and researcher.
His creative practice responds to specific social and political issues, historical relationships and geographical sites. Adopting a research driven approach, and using a variety of media, his work over the past 30 years has ranged from painting, through photography and installation to a use of digital media, video and computer based interactivity. His work oozes Piper’s political concerns and his practice links to his involvement with the Blk Art Group: a collective of art students encouraging an interest in art by black artists in Britain.
Keith Piper has exhibited internationally but has had many solo shows in London especially. He has had his work shown in group shows at various institutions including Tate Britain and at the Turner Contemporary.
