Joe Keys graduated from the Fine Art department of Iceland University of the Arts in 2021. He was born in Newcastle, UK and has lived in Iceland since 2018.
He predominantly works with found material through sculpture and printmaking. The works he makes reflect systems of organisation in daily life, with a dry humour and consideration for overlooked and under-appreciated objects.
He currently works as a supervisor in the printmaking workshop of Iceland University of the Arts, and is part of the co-operative Print & Friends in Laugardalur, Reykjavík.
