Johns paints these multi-figure oil paintings in large format on stretched canvas. Each painting begins as a theatrical arrangement of specific characters all having something to say about the story they depict. Costumes are custom designed and characters are cast much like a dramatic performance. He directs the arrangement for lighting and effect.
Keith Martin Johns has been represented by Nuance Galleries since 2000. His works are in many important collections. The University of Tampa has 3 major paintings in its elegant ballroom atop the Vaughn Center.
