Artist Keith Haynes creates a map of the tube with vinyl records
Artist Keith Haynes made a Map Series of artwork that uses vinyl records that shares it’s name with a place. His work has been displayed in galleries, sometimes with headphones provided for the audience to listen to as a playlist.
Keith Haynes love of working in mixed media and music leads him to his map project, using records and songs inspired by that particular place. Searching for the right record now is a big part of his work, and makes special playlists for the Map Series before cutting up each vinyl.
As quoted by Haynes, “I see my Map Series of works as love songs to London and I couldn’t see myself making these pieces if I lived in any other city in the world. It never fails to surprise me how many songs London has influenced.
‘The thing I love most about London has to be its eclecticism. You can’t help but feel you’re at the centre of the world when you live in London. It’s also the opportunity to see the best live theatre and music. I try and get out and see something live at least every couple of weeks – when work allows.”
At the moment he is preparing for other shows and art fairs, including his first exhibition in Montreal, Canada.
