ABOUT THIS ART:

The framing option for this RUN includes a 1 inch ornate gold frame with UV-glass, foam core backing and ready to hang hardware.

Note: Each print is uniquely hand-embellished by Kukula and will vary slightly from the example shown.

"This is first hand embellished print I ever made. Each print is unique and took a lot of effort to create.  The painting was a part of a color pencil multi-character group show at Corey Helford Gallery, and it was inspired but French Toile tapestries and Chanel Cruise collection from 2013 (the Versailles Collection).  It is the only full background and full composition painting I have ever made in color pencils." - Kukula

ABOUT THE ARTIST:  Kukula was born in a relatively isolated village about an hour north of Tel Aviv. Her few neighbors were mostly retirees, many of them Holocaust survivors. Her childhood imagination was nourished by equal parts princess fantasies and World War II horror stories. Thus the attempt to reconcile real life horror with fantasy life sweetness emerges as a central theme in her work.


After receiving her degree in illustration in 2003 from Vital-Shenkar, Kukula moved to the U.S., where she lives now.

Kukula’s paintings center on feminine, doll-like figures, often surrounded by objects with sometimes clear, sometimes obscure symbolic meaning. The work registers the influences of both classical European art forms and contemporary pop culture. In her figures’ poses Kukula recalls traditional portraiture, yet the style is manifestly modern and pop-influenced. Kukula’s compositions thereby disclose her personal struggles as mediated by a rich multi-cultural heritage.
