The Kiss by Annette Back

Booth #474

Artist Bio:
I have always been expressive and creative. My parents described me as a constant doodler in childhood. My interest in art and design began to blossom as a teenager in Frankfurt, Germany, where I grew up. At my art studies in Gymnasium, I studied and copied famous artists such as Monet and Magritte. When I was 17 years old, my family and I moved to the New York Tri-State Area throwing me into the senior year of high school. Surviving culture shock and the new world, I happily discovered School of Visual Arts. As my mother wisely said: “Artists have to eat too”, I decided to major in graphic design as well as study fine art. Graphic Design kept me busy for many years, but 5 years ago it was no longer enough. The painting urge, though never fully gone, had returned strong and bold. I continue to develop my art form and paint mostly in oils. I like to use photos and text that I paint over with layers upon layers of colors, lines, geometric shapes, textures, patterns, and shades. I use many different techniques and interesting color combinations to achieve my vision. Inspirations and ideas come from everything around me, sometimes nature, sometimes a transition in a video, sometimes and old photograph – the face of a child or raindrops. Painting makes me feel happy, at peace and loving life.
