Bio:

If Art Nouveau and Abstract Expressionism collided on the highway, and you drew a chalk outline of the body? That might sum up Kate Kelton’s work.

Her unique approach and eclectic style are directly influenced by her vagabond beginnings. Born in Bamberg, Germany after her parents escaped Czechoslovakia, Kate spent her early years in a VW bus traveling Europe with her artist mother. Settling in Toronto at seven, she attended the Etobicoke School of the Arts as an Visual Arts Major, and received a Bachelor of Applied Arts in Film from Ryerson University. Her adopted father was an architect. His grandfather and namesake was Czech starchitect, Josef Fanta.

Now in Los Angeles, Kate has appeared in Stephen King’s Syfy show “Haven”; the cult classic “Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle,” and as the lead in IFC’s “Bullet In The Face,” opposite Eric Roberts and Eddie Izzard. She’s a contributing author to “Making It in High Heels: Inspiring Stories by Women for Women of All Ages.” Artist Jason Shawn Alexander asked her to pose as the lead role of Corrine for his comic book series, “Empty Zone.” Eric Clapton’s music video for “Can’t Let You Do It,” features Kate painting, while surrounded by her paintings.

Kate’s been exhibiting internationally since 1994: including her first hit solo show at Gabba Gallery in 2017, among other group shows at La Luz de Jesus in LA; Gallery 1988 in New York, Venice and West Hollywood; Galerie F in Chicago; Lawless Concept Gallery in Montreal; and The Sony Centre for the Performing Arts in Toronto.
