About The Artist

Keith Sturgeon, aka “Skeeter” is from the greater Youngstown, Ohio area and is primarily a pinstripe artist focusing on striping and stripe portraits who also does some old-school lettering on items personalized for clients. He has been working on his pinstripe art for about nine years and his techniques have evolved over time.

Keith has done many commissioned works for collectors but is most proud of an unveiling of a painting at the Harley Davidson Museum for a charity that benefits homeless, female U.S. Armed Forces Veterans known as “Final Salute”. Sturgeon gleans inspiration from others in his field and admires other pinstripe artists’ works regularly while always being impressed with the imagination and generosity of their time and talents and credits Von Dutch’s works for inspiring him to get into the symmetrical style of pinstriping art.

“I love the Kustom scene, everyone that I have met that is into it has become a friend and I hope it continues to grow” says Sturgeon.

Keith mainly uses Alpha 6 Corp paints and brushes in his creations. 
He really wants his style of portraits to take off so he can retire one day and enjoy life” and he's hoping to have his own one-man show someday. His plans for the future are to continue to grow as an artist and keep pushing his unique style to the limit.

The portraits are done with pinstripes that are driven towards realistic-looking, traditional portraits from a distance but once you get closer you see that there are literally thousands and thousands of individual lines. A portrait can take 25 hours plus to complete. There are not many other artists creating this style of pinstripe art and Keith wants to be the best at what he does and hopes to one day be able to sell the realism of his pinstripe portraits on a medium to large scale.
