Keith Garvey

Keith Garvey was young when he developed a real love of drawing. At the age of 10, he was inspired by the works of comic book artist, Jack Kirby. By the age of 12, Garvey was studying the exceptional rendering of the female form by the world famous pin-up artist Alberto Vargas, whose girls were featured in Playboys' monthly magazine. After sneaking the Playboys into his room, he saw Vargas' girls as a works of sensual art rather just nude girls.

Admiring the beauties painted by Vargas and what became known as; "Varga Girls" set Garvey's artistic direction. From then on his focus was perfecting his interpretation of the female form onto paper and canvas. He was also influenced by other famous pin-up artists, whose art fits well into the category of "Glamerotica", exemplified through the works of Japanese artist, Hajime Sorayama.

Offering a refreshing mixture of vintage and modern day glamour art, Garvey began to digitize his drawings and continues to impress all who appreciate the beauty of a woman.

Keith Garvey lives in western New York and holds a degree in commercial art from the Institute of Pittsburgh.
