Performance Painter Scramble Campbell Returns To Blues & Brews

Telluride Blues & Brews Festival is excited to welcome back Scramble Campbell to the Festival Line up! Scramble will be painting to the tunes all weekend during the festival. Keep an eye out for him and please drop by to say hello! Scramble will be painting and displaying his artwork in the festival VIP area and at the official Blues & Brews Art Galley at Arroyo Wine Bar throughout the weekend.

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 the inherent feeling of the music and actions of the performers through light, color, texture, composition and vigorous brushwork.

For decades, Campbell’s ‘performance paintings’ have drawn inspiration from places like the intimate setting of a dark nightclub to the collective consciousness of a large concert or festival. The subject matter 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.

Campbell is often referred to as ‘the guy painting at Red Rocks’. He has completed more than two hundred performance paintings at the world famous venue. Only miles from his home, he admits, “the Amphitheater is my favorite outdoor studio, can you blame me?” During his long career, he has painted more than two thousand paintings at nearly one thousand musical events across the country. Campbell’s prolific portfolio is not limited to his performance paintings. It also includes various commissions, paintings and events he has done for charity, and many corporate events. His art is found in numerous collections across the world.

Be sure to stop by Scramble's set-up area located along the fence line in VIP and GA during the festival weekend and check out his artwork! For more info on Scramble's work, visit:
