Bio 
Keith R. Breitfeller was raised in Catasauqua, a small town in eastern Pennsylvania, in 1952. Keith had a hunger to explore beyond the boundaries of this little hamlet. He proceeded to attend Kutztown college, studied with New York Artist, Marion Pinto. The keystone of his methods was acquired at the Barnstone Studio, a renaissance type Master and Apprentice program.  The heavy emphasis on the Golden Section and color theory continues to inform his work.
 
Residing in Philadelphia, Keith has exhibited locally for 30 years with solo exhibits at Vox Populi, Sande Webster Gallery, Abington Art Center and Perkin’s Center for the Arts. Outside of the region he has shown in Texas, Tennessee, Massachusetts and in Austria. His work is included in many private and corporate collections in Athens, London, Dubai and throughout the Northeast. The last few years he has completed a number of commissions.
 
Keith’s work has been influenced by the impressionist , modernist and pointillist. He uses figure to ground relationships to deliberately confuse the subject matter, allowing the viewer to find themselves in the artwork. The use of small individual brush strokes and the placement of one color against the next, gives an ever changing color palette to the piece. His aim is to provide a place of peace and contemplation to the viewer.
