KEITH BATCHELLER

FINE ART

Keith Batcheller, a native of Southern California, graduated with Honors from Art Center College of Design. Keith began his professional career in New York City as an illustrator. He has worked worldwide for many clients, creating paintings for advertising, books, magazines, design firms and corporations. He has also done movie posters for many of the Hollywood studios—including over 50 movie posters for Walt Disney Studios.

As a representative of the Society of Illustrators, Keith has traveled to many of the U.S. Air Force bases here and abroad, and has done sixteen paintings for the United States Air Force Art Collection. Some of these paintings have been displayed in the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum. Five of Keith’s paintings were chosen and are currently on a year long Exhibition in the Pentagon in Washington D.C.

In recent years, Keith has turned his efforts and talent exclusively to the sale of his original oils, limited edition prints and giclées. Keith has always had a keen interest in the history of the Old West and American Indians. He loves painting western subjects, wildlife, and landscapes that tell a story and convey a strong sense of emotion. Keith has been honored with many accolades and awards in his career; recently, he won the “Best of Show Award” at the Gillman Historic Ranch Western Art Show, and the Gold Medal for "Best Oil Painting" at the 37th Annual San Dimas Festival of Western Art.
