Keith Piper first exhibited in 1981 as a member of the BLK Art Group, an association of black British art students, mostly based in the West Midlands region of the UK.

In a series of exhibitions entitled The Pan African Connection, members of the group including Eddie Chambers, Claudette Johnson and Donald Rodney, sought to explore issues relevant to aspects of black political struggles through contemporary art practice.

Following the dissolution of the Blk Art Group in 1984, Piper continued to work within the context of the developing wave of black British artists who were to emerge during the 1980's.

During the mid 1980's Pipers work developed around an exploration of multi-media elements such as tape/slide, sound and video within an Installation based practice. This would go on to embrace the use of computers as a means of collaging images and sounds and constructing video installation.

Throughout the 1990's Piper has continued to explore the various applications of digital technologies within an issue based fine art practice. This has recently included the development of interactive installation based work, CD-Rom and Web site construction.
