Geoffrey Key is widely regarded as one of the most important artists working in Britain today.
Geoffrey Key’s acclaimed career as an artist spans five decades thus far. He has built upon his early academic studies at the High School of Art and Regional College of Art in Manchester, where he was taught by the sculpture Ted Roocroft and painter Harry Rutherford, to achieve an important national and international status. He has a distinguished reputation for his individual and diligent expression of form, light and colour. His work features in private, public and corporate collections worldwide including the Victoria and Albert Museum, Manchester Museum of Science and Industry, North West Arts Board, Manchester Art Gallery, National Westminster Bank, Mandarin Oriental Hotel Hong Honk, Jockey Club of Hong Kong, Societe Roquefort, Chateau de St Ouen and Perrier.
Key has recently achieved a record price at Christie’s 20th Century British Art Sale last October and continues to climb steadily as one of the most sought after British artists painting today.
He has critics, art dealers and buyers raving about his work, said one fine art dealer - not just the best thing to come along since Lowry but going to be much, much better.
