I wanted to capture the feeling you get when you look out onto a breathtaking view. That moment when everything is bursting with life and vibrancy and you feel connected to the Earth. I also enjoy the reflection of the mountain which makes a mirror image. I have updated the landscape idea a bit with some metallic silver and gold drawing overlapping the acrylic paint. I have also used a few collaged photos of flowers!

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.
