David O'Keefe
David OíKeefe Master Sculptor and Passionate Painter

Raised on Hollywood, sports and rock and roll music, David O`Keefe has an acute awareness for the images and personalities that have colored the lives of his generation. He just sees things differently Ė more intensely, edgier, somewhat more perspicuous than the average spectator. The pop culture icons that we idolize, glamorize and glorify, O`íKeefe visualizes for us in all their humanness as well as their stardom.

A past editorial illustrator for over 25 years, O`íKeefe began his art career at The Tampa Tribune as a promotion artist, dabbled in editorial cartooning under mentor, Wayne Stayskal, and spent several years as the Special Project`s Illustrator for the newsroom. His sardonic caricatures and humorous illustrations have appeared on the covers of Sports Illustrated, Sports Illustrated for Kids, Mad Magazine, The Village Voice and within the pages of TIME and Golf Digest.

In 2007, David left his day job to pursue his passion of painting and sculpting pop culture icons. O`íKeefe`ís work is transformative, capturing not just the likeness of his subjects, but their personalities as well. The Godfather, I Love Lucy, Cadddyshack, Dirty Harry and Animal House are just a few Pop Culture Icons that have been immortalized by O`íKeefe. His company, David O`íKeefe Studios, distributes his work through galleries across the country and in Europe. David O`íKeefe Studios also operates a solo gallery on St. Armandís Circle in Sarasota, Florida.

O`íKeefe`ís work has won numerous awards and has been collected by celebrities such as Tony Siragusa, Franco Harris, Michael Richards, Michael Oher, Alex Trebek and Spike Lee.

He considers himself blessed to pursue his dream and finds great joy in his work and in his family. O`íKeefe currently resides in the Tampa Bay Area with his wife, Janice and their four children.
