Keshida Layone is a self-taught abstract painter from New York.
Keshida Layone was pre-destined for a life rich in the arts. His mother a Poet/ Writer and so many other creative people in his family are also Painters, Actors, and Musicians all creatively enriching in their own right and all powerful influences in his life, sent him on a path of exploration towards his own creative endeavors which culminated into many of the works he has created.
Keshida’s work is derived from the inner most expressions of his self. His definition of creativity is to be fearless. To expose oneself unabashedly and without reservation.
“When I look at a white blank canvas before I drown it in color I think to myself what does it feel like to be almost invisible…” And then my hands begin to make love to the paint brush- hair woven together and binded by metal and wood that helps me tell a story of someone’s heart. A place love could be or where there is no love but lustful color and drunken dreams.”
