212 Arts presents, Artist on the rise, Kira Lee, "Paintng All The Art" on Thursday, October 27th from 7pm -10pm at the gallery located at 240 East 4th Street, New York. The collection is a study in "Iconic Pointillism", a technique that Kira Lee created using written word as pointillism.
"No one has ever used handwritten words for pointillism before. It’s not a concept I came up with overnight. The process of creating texture and grey scale from typography has been and still is evolving over the years,” said Kira Lee.
Kira has used her Iconic Pointillism to create murals of some of Hollywood's most notable faces. From Marilyn Monroe to David Bowie to Beyonce and Jay-Z, Kira used incredible detail to create intensely realistic art. Not only has Kira grabbed the attention of art enthusiasts, she is also held in high regard by accredited artists around the world. When asked about Kira’s art, world-renowned contemporary pop artist, Bradley Theodore said, "Her art makes love with words.”
“I love the idea of creating something with another connected thing. Using theories to outline horn-rimmed glasses. Song lyrics twisted and turned into locks of hair. Heart-aching poems carved into crows feet. Culture-defining philosophies stitched into a silk robe,” said Lee. “Gathering these beautiful writings and celebrating them collectively with something as dynamic as the Artists portrait.”
Kira will be displaying her work at the prestigous 212 Arts located at 240 East 4th Street, New York. 212 Arts recently celebrated it one year anniversary by highlighting some of the globes most talented street artists. 212 Arts is committed to the promotion of urban and street art, as well as New York culture and pop art. 212 Arts is famous for exhibiting a diverse group of artists.
This is my first showing in New York City and I can think of no better place to exhibit than 212 Arts. Come and check out my work and see in person the creation of iconography with typepography," conclude Kira Lee.
