John Kelly is a New York based performance and visual artist.  His performance works are character driven and stem from autobiographical, cultural, political issues, and the nature of creative genius.  His visual art includes self-reflective imagery realized through drawing, painting, photography, a graphic novel, animations, and video installations.


John Kelly’s Debut Album: Beauty Kills Me has been released – You can purchase it here. Thanks for all our Indiegogo campaign contributors who supported this project.

Our concert at Joes Pub to celebrate the album launch of Beauty Kills Me was a great success, with a sold-out house and magnificent performances by Kelly and his special guests Carol Lipnik and Matt Kanelos.

On March 26th Kelly was the subject of the Coffeehouse Chronicles at LaMaMa.  This career celebration included archival material, panelists, and brief live performances – see the video and images HERE.
