Artist Akiane Kramarik Akiane Kramarik was born on July 9, 1994, in Mount Morris, Illinois, to a Lithuanian mother and a non-practicing Catholic American father. Kramarik is a self-taught painter and says that Jesus spoke to her when she was four years old, encouraging her to draw and paint her visions. She began to draw at the age of four, was painting at six, and began to write poetry at seven. She considers herself a journalist artist exploring and interpreting diverse epochs, cultures, faiths, worlds through her art. “I want people to find hope in my work.” Every so often she paints commissioned portraits and soul-scapes—mystic landscapes of the soul—a visionary interpretation of a soul’s journey through life—an individual’s past and future. “I try to decode and interpret a soul’s direction and purpose and depict exact locations and experiences that could be identified within a person’s lifetime.” She uses real models, authentic biographies and visionary experiences for creating her paintings.

Artist Ai Xuan Born in 1947 in Zhejiang as the son of a famous political poet Ai Quing. He studied at the Central Academy of Fine Arts, where at the time there weren’t many options to choose from. Students could learn traditional ink painting or realism. Luckily, Ai Xuan chose the latter, indebting the art world from that point on. The artist proudly states that realism is the only style he has ever known. In art, he values technique and required skill. This point of view might easily contradict to anything modern, which Ai Xuan frowns upon. He strongly believes that the harder it was to make the artwork, the better it is. #art #painting #realism #portrait
