Keilitz was born in Silesia, Poland in 1944 and grew up in Leipzig. After his flight from East Germany in 1970 he studied science of communication in Munich, Ludwig-Maximilian-University.

At the same time, for further developping  his personality in the free democratic West Germany, he started his studies of art with M.Minde, K.F.Dahmen (Academy of Art, Munich) and later on with Teruko Hiramatsu, Tokyo.

In several art projects with musicians, he shows his relationship to music (Eric Satie, Charles Koechlin, Herbert Henck) and to lyrics too (Octavio Paz, Ernst Meister).

Keilitz has exhibited nationally and internationally (Germany, Warsaw Autumn, Poland, France, Portugal).

Artist Statement

The representation of the ease of the steel with simultaneous inherent strengths in it, and to show this dynamic presence by means of the deformation and colour design, is one of my intentions.

My work approach is integral to the understanding of lifted separation from spirit and matter. Everything is one - one energetic potential, one consciousness.
