I’m a community artist, which means I don’t do art for money. I swap it – for donations to charity, materials I need to make things, opportunities for others. I love making, painting, sketching and keeping myself busy being creative. To know that some people like what I do and want to hang it on their wall, well that’s a bonus!

Keith Hayes #KREATIONS

I like to think I can make something out of anything I find. I call them my #KREATIONS. Every #KREATION is unique, all have a story or a meaning behind them. If you have keepsakes or items that mean a lot to you that you would like me to turn into something, get in touch. I love a challenge!

Keith Hayes | Artist | Pieces

Keith was one of our first live artists in The Street Gallery | Church Road.

One of Keith’s famous giraffes, a favourite with our younger visitors (and quite a few old ones too!) exhibited on the DAC. Keith sold it and donated the funds back into the DAC project. Thanks Keith!

HOW TO CONTACT KEITH

Keith is a Community Artist which means he doesn’t accept money for his pieces. He will make a deal with you for the piece – either a donation to a cause, an opportunity for  a person or an investment in materials for future projects. We think it’s a pretty cool way of doing things. Contact him or follow him here.

#loveKEITH!

On the DAC this is our hashtag for Keith. Unknown to many, Keith is the unstoppable force without whom the DAC project would be a fraction of what it is today. Keith has donated countless hours of his time to making frames, hanging pictures, painting walls … donating also the materials and his endless energy. A modest man he does it without thanks and shies away from recognition, so this is our place to say ‘Thank you Keith’. You’re amazing. #loveKEITH
