I was inspired by watching a group of koi swimming in a bright blue pool. I took a couple of photos, and worked from those to create this painting. Each fish had such a great pattern of orange spots, and they seemed to swim so gracefully together as a group. I love the bright contrast of the orange and blue!

Getting to Know Kira

Kira Yustak paints fantastical scenes that come from her childhood memories, dreams, and the natural world. Each piece feels like part of a larger narrative of an alternative reality, rendered in a style she describes as comic realism. She feels art must trigger something inside the viewer’s soul.Kira currently lives in New Jersey and finds inspiration in the work of Lowbrow, Folk, and Surrealist artists.
