My name is Kevin Daly and Keb was a nickname I had many years ago. I decided to start using Keb for my art as it's a lot easier to remember and to sign....so there.
Since childhood I have loved to paint, but it was something I did rarely until the last few years. I studied mainly the sciences in college and went on to become a software engineer and later attended medical school at Yale. After medical school I became an emergency physician and have been practicing emergency medicine for the last twenty years. As I grew older, raised a family, and continued to practice medicine I began to feel a strong need to express myself creatively. I think my experiences with so many people during some of the most pivotal points in their lives played a major part in that. My life experiences outside of medicine have also been subjects of many of my paintings.
Several years ago I began to seriously explore my art as a form of self expression. There is something deeply satisfying for me when it comes to painting. For me the point of greatest excitement is when I come up with the vision for my next painting. Sometimes I will literally dictate the concept on my phone or write it on a piece of paper, like a songwriter, so I don't forget it later. Creating art has opened windows into myself I didn't know were there. Literally, creating new synapses in my brain forging paths to untapped realms in my subconscious.
I don't necessarily like classifying my art as being a particular genre of art. I am not boxing myself in. If I had to though I would say most of my work is representative art and would be considered contemporary realism. That doesn't mean in a few months I may be not be making abstract pieces. I am literally going were my mind and heart takes me.
I offer limited edition prints of many of my paintings. Open edition prints are also available. Select [Shop Prints] on the main menu to shop for open edition prints and other items depicting my artwork or clck here.
