Hey everyone,
Its Keith Ciaramello from Kustom Kulture Gallery & Tattoo in New York.
I tattoo, paint, draw, sculpt, stripe(newbie), and work on the Mac.

I own the gallery and also run the Sketchkult art forum (home of Stripekult).
Please visit

Feel free to contact me off-board kustomkulture@optonline.net with any questions about the gallery, sketchkult, or whatever you need...

Here's some of my work, let me know what you think!






Prints are available, thanks for looking!

Thanks a lot! Hope you join my forum too. It's still pretty "folksy" at 200 members or so, but it's a great group. Would love to see more TIKI STYLE represented there!

Great stuff, welcome aboard. Dig it all, but especially the wahines. I get out to New York at least once a year, where are you located?

awesome stuff.... I went to your site....way cool art, but my only complaint was that there was no pricing on the art....there were so many pieces i was interested in, i.e. Tidwell's art, that i couldn't possibly call in to ask for info on all of them...this seems to be a problem with most gallery/artist sites. ...never pricing available. I have collected low-brow art for years and when i visit a site, i want to make a purchase immediatly, if not sooner.....another peeve, and this doesn't really involve you, is when artists post a site and i visit it, and all the art or most of it is sold already....?????...again, I visit with the hopes of buying something and when confronted with sold out stuff i get frustrated....it's great to see the work an artist has done and to see that they are selling alot, but people, if you don't have enough stuff available for sale, why send people to your site...wait and build up a body of work, then send us on over. Am I just being crazy, or does anyone else get as frustrated about this too. I don;'t mean to come off sounding bitchy and keifer, i apologize for using your thread to go off about this....I'm not trying to pick on you so please forgive me...i'm just trying to understand all this....

Um, just call or e-mail and tell me what you're interested in. 516 623 5665....See how easy that is. Now, Breathe....Ahhhh...LOL!

We are in the process of re-launching our site for fall 2005. You will have the ability to order online with pricing, availability, and descriptions. The thumbnail gallery we have now is a quick-fix, and thank God it has worked to facilitate sales for the time being.

As for my own work/prints, I chose not to feature my art (other than tattoos) on the gallery site at first because I felt it made the wrong impression. The gallery is meant as a hub for the lowbrow art community, as is sketchkult.com. I will have my art on the re-launced site among the other artsts. I do not want to be the focus,

As for your other questions, I can't speak for everyone, but in my case....
I am a one man band! I have to paint, tattoo, design, sell, contact, market, advertise, ship, recieve, pick, pack, ...(getting the point???). By the way. Many gallery sites don't price because values can change daily.

I agree with all your comments and crits for the most part. As we grow as a business, look forward to more convenience, new products, events, and more fun!

Thanks for your input, no need to apologize,
Keef and Broccoli

Welcome Keith - Of course, your artwork is top notch. It's nice to see a fellow "kustom freak" around here too!
