About the Artist
Artist: Rainer Keller (Swiss, born 1964)
Currently living and working in New York City
Rainer creates art, often in series, with inspiration from the world at-hand. The work is often conceptualized from both his head and heart and expressed across divers genres in a variety of media such as drawing, painting, photography and print.
Born, raised and educated in his native Switzerland, he has made New York City his home for the last 18 years. He has traveled extensively throughout Europe, Asia, the United States and Central America and has lived for extended periods in the Southern California desert, New Orleans, Santa Fe (NM) and from 2009 – 2011 in Kathmandu, Nepal. The ability to absorb cultural differences and gain artistic insight from the richness of each location and the depth of his experiences, colors all of his work.
He has participated in solo and group exhibitions in New York, New Orleans, Los Angeles, and Switzerland and his works hang in private collections in the U.S., Europe and Central America.
The limited box set editions and a few single special edition prints are available trough Saatchi Art online or directly contact info[at]machineoverdrive.com, Inquiries about exhibiting the Machine Overdrive paintings are welcome.
