As a young boy who grew up in the Wild Hundreds, an area in the south side of Chicago known for its violent reputation, Barett Keithley used his surroundings as fuel to express himself. This expression started with both writing and painting. He began combining the two into one form, taking shape into his vivid work on canvas, that has since evoked harmonious emotions from its viewers.
