Keith Mallett has been creating paintings for the fine art print market for over fifteen years. A prolific artist, his subject matter ranges from still life to abstracts. In recent years he has concentrated his talents on themes that portray the love and strength that exists within the African American family.
Born in Pennsylvania in 1948, Keith studied painting at the Art Students League, Hunter College in New York City, and L.A. Valley College in Los Angeles. His painting "Harmony" was chosen for the cover of Sisterfire, a collection of poems by Maya Angelou, Alice Walker, and Terry McMillan, among others. He was recently honored with a commission to paint the only official limited edition print commemorating the 50th Anniversary of Jackie Robinson's historic breakthrough into major league baseball. "The Earth Angel Suite", a series of limited edition prints depicting the four seasons as guardian angels, has been chosen by the Franklin Mint to be made into collector plates.
Keith Mallett stated, "As an African American artist it is my desire, through my artwork, to depict the positive aspects of the African American experience. If I can show but one child the strength and beauty of her past or the bright hope of his future then I feel I will have done my job."
