Ian McKeever was born in Withernsea, Yorkshire, in 1946. After moving to London to study English Literature he began working as a self-taught painter in 1969 and, two years later, had his first solo show at the Cardiff Arts Centre. In 1989 he was awarded the prestigious DAAD scholarship in Berlin. McKeever has held various teaching positions, including guest Professor at the Städel Akademie der Kunst in Frankfurt, and is now visiting Professor at the University of Brighton. In 2003 he was appointed a Royal Academician and in 2006 he was made Professor of Drawing at the Royal Academy Schools of Art.
As well as a painter, McKeever is a naturally gifted printmaker and has worked in etching, drypoint, woodcut and lithography. In 2008 a selection of his prints were exhibited at Tate St Ives as part of a tribute to the etcher Hugh Stoneman with whom he collaborated on numerous occasions.
