Founded by an artist.
Ant Steel is a professional artist with over 30 years experience in all manner of creative roles. He has owned animation studios and serviced blue chip brands such as Samsung, Coca Cola, Unilever, Nestle, Energizer, Apple, Honda and many more. He has lectured animation to children at the college of education and as a graphic artist has lead teams of creatives. For the last 10 years Ant has focused more on spay painting, airbrush and graffiti. In 2013 Ant's passion for the rawness of paint and its brutal honesty was rekindled when he created a 32 foot mural in California. Since then he has had a vision to share street art painting with everyone.
Connected to an art collective.
One of the most exciting and unique elements of Keepit Street is our connection to The Collective Gallery artists! All of the members are ambassadors for Keepit Street and join in alongside the community with every project we do. This is a group of fantastic artists who are overflowing with inspiration and positivity to share with the crew.
Creating powerful imagery
There's been such a positive response from the community and especially from schools and youth groups that we thought what a marvellous opportunity this is for brands to get involved and expose their message in a very hands-on way! Many brands we talk to have either charitable programmes running or important social messages to get out into the community, especially a youth community. This demographic is usually really hard to reach, however with our Keepit Street murals and activities this audience literally comes to us and gets involved because it’s something they can take ownership of and is so rewarding.
