This piece was inspired by watching hummingbirds feeding on flowers in a backyard. I hoped to capture some of the beauty and magical quality of these tiny, delicate creatures. I painted areas of the canvas with a a bit of glitter. It has some sparkle on the surface in areas!

This piece is acrylic paint and glitter on gallery wrapped canvas with finished green edges.  It comes ready to hang.

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.
