Niki Key is the creator and artist of the 40hourARTweek: a unique endeavor in which a 30”x30” canvas is brought from concept to finished piece in the course of a standard 40 hour work week. The entire 40 hours is filmed in time lapse, edited, and paired with a music on her 40hourARTweek YouTube channel.
Niki has established a style over her career inspired by the intimacy of Chuck Close’s large scale portraiture and a love of vibrant hues. Portraits of her subjects spring from the canvas through her unexpected use of shocking, bright, contrasting colors.
Niki is available for commissioned oil portraits as well as private and group instruction for techniques in oil, watercolor or clay sculpture in-home or in-studio for adults or children (ten and older). As a seasoned stand up comedian and formally trained artist, Niki makes learning fun for any age. If you’ve been wanting to try something new, give a call!
She has open studio hours (80 Old Ridgefield Road, third floor inside Hello, Yoga, Wilton, CT ) Monday-Friday from 9am to 11am and by appointment. There’s no satisfaction in staying curious! Come enjoy the gallery, have a cup of coffee and meet your local artist!
