It's A Big Country by Keith Haynes
It's A Big Country by Keith Haynes
It's a Big Country is a Mixed Media Limited Edition by contemporary artist Keith Haynes. Created using Vintage Badges, and framed in Perspex, each unique piece is from an edition of 10 and is signed by the artist.

Keith Haynes is a contemporary artist whose work is driven by a passion for music and design. Nostalgic and playful, Haynes has carved out a contemporary Pop Art niche, blending subject and object through his use of culture clutter - button badges, album covers, and vinyl all combine in his tactile artworks, until lines of distinction to blur: the subject is the object, and vice versa, in Haynes' compelling, meta approach.



It's a Big Country takes twentieth century clutter to dizzying heights: a selection of vintage badges have been arranged into the shape of the UK, for a nation-wide trip down memory lane. Smart, tactile, and unapologetically appealing, It's a Big Country transforms the past into the art of the future.


About The Artist - Keith Haynes

London-born, Keith Haynes is a contemporary artist whose work is driven by a passion for music and design. Nostalgic and playful, Keith’s work has carved a distinctive niche in Pop Art culture, blending subject and object through his use of the ‘clutter’ of popular culture - button badges, album covers, and vinyl records.

With his love of graphic design, Keith creates work of striking visual acuity, playing with texture, colour and composition to generate an eye-catching aesthetic. Retrospective and yet also forward-looking, Keith has found a delicate way of holding onto our tactile past, refusing the onslaught of digitalisation.

Whether it’s a graphically iconic portrait, a map or song lyric, each piece is created from a material that enhances the subject matter.

In his “Hitsville” map series of works, Keith selects each vinyl record based on the song’s title and the beauty and originality of the record label. Look closely, and you’ll spot the geographical relevance of each record’s positioning, allowing the final piece to become not just a graphic representation but also an evocation of place through sound and music. With this approach the subject is the object, and vice versa.

His work has been exhibited extensively in the UK and overseas and can be found in private collections in Europe, America, Canada, Asia and Australia.
