Karsten Creightney
American, born 1976




Born, raised and currently residing in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Creightney received his BA from Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio.  He subsequently completed the highly-regarded one-year program
in lithography printing at the Tamarind Institute in Albuquerque and received an MFA in painting from the University of New Mexico. Creightney is a painter of medium-to-large scale landscapes but
another side of his work also delves into contemporary topics that confront African-Americans.

His work is in the collection of the Arkansas Arts Center, Cleveland Museum of Art, Detroit Institute of Arts, Flint Institute of Arts, Fort Wayne Museum of Art, Kalamazoo Institute of Arts, Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Springfield (MO) Art Museum and numerous other institutions.

The Flint Institute of Art organized the artist’s first museum one-person exhibit in 2012, showing approximately thirty works on paper.   Creightney’s painting “Roadside Memorial” is featured in a
primary set of the new AMC TV “Better Call Saul,” a spin-off of hit series “Breaking Bad.”

Zanatta Editions and the artist have collaborated on four projects since 2009 that have produced editioned prints and unique monotypes. In addition to prints from those projects, a selection of Creightney’s unique works on paper, prints created on the artist’s own studio press, and paintings are represented by Joe Zanatta Contemporary Art.
