Ash Keating Born 1980, Melbourne, Victoria; lives and works in Melbourne
Ash Keating has exhibited extensively in galleries and created numerous large-scale, site-responsive art projects in Australia and internationally since 2004. He has undertaken numerous large-scale painting commissions in public spaces, including the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne (2013), the Adelaide Festival Centre (2015), Sydney’s Domain (2018), as well as self initiated projects across Melbourne. Keating’s painting process involves applying paint and water from both pressurised fire extinguishers and an airless sprayer to create dynamic, layered works of scale that harness the gravitational pull of paint down the surface of the structure. Keating’s art practice has attracted significant attention in Australia and his works are held in many public and private collections including the NGV, NGA, MCA, AGNSW, MUMA and Artbank.
