Douglas Ward Kelley (A.K.A. DJ SecretROCKER, Jay Tabasco, Psychic Avenger, and others) is a philosophical Speculative Realist Conceptual Artist, as well as an art publisher, historian, curator and critical documentarian, and since 2008 think-tank consultant based in New York since 1970. Kelley graduated from the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in 1974 and moved to an artist in residency loft building in Hells Kitchen where he has lived since 1974. Following a Duchampian formula of art making over the past 45 years has strived to defy fixed definitions of what an artist should be. His oeuvre includes painting, performance, photography, video, new media, and internet based projects. Kelley has a message for artists. 
His unique and informed opinion on art history and avant-garde theory has influenced multiple generations of the New York art scene. Most recently Kelley is known for the Douglas Kelley Show and the DKS List, an interactive social performance which became the gold standard social calendar of the New York art scene for over a decade. In 2008, he expanded beyond the art world to the web to engage larger audiences about the most critical existential 21st-century issues in order to initiate action on lean, mean and green sustainable solutions to climate chaos, future hyper-technologies, and the swift recalibration of many of the world's broken human support systems such as; economics, agriculture, energy, education, culture, and more.
Kelley’s work is not just linguistic, jingoistic and simplistic readjustment but deeply felt and agreed upon spiritual recalibrations that will result in a universal enlightenment that will result in a radical change for you that will bring the human species back into an equitable equilibrium and positive sustainable relationship with the nature.
