About Scramble Campbell
Colorado based artist Keith 'Scramble' Campbell is nationally recognized for his paintings 'live and in concert' because he actually attends concerts where he completes paintings during the course of a single performance. Campbell endeavors to capture- through light, color, texture, composition and vigorous brushwork- the inherent feeling of the music and actions of the performers. For two decades, Campbell's 'performance paintings' have been inspired in places like the intimate setting of a dark nightclub to the collective consciousness of a large concert or festival. The subject matters of Campbell's paintings include the musically elite as well as up and coming new talent. Including artists such as: BB King, Fats Domino, Willie Nelson, Widespread Panic, and String Cheese Incident.
