The other evening, I noticed a crescent moon that was lying down on its back. This happens in the winter, or early spring, in the northern hemisphere and is so beautiful! I wanted to capture this type of scene in a painting. Something about it is serene, yet mysterious! This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. It comes ready to hang.

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.
