Open Studios STL 2014 - Aunia Kahn

Aunia Kahn

Painter Aunia Kahn in her business, Alexi Era Gallery on Washington Avenue. I struggle for words to describe her style of art, sort of gothic-comic book-horror-romance. It's hard to make a go of it as a small art dealer in a medium size city but she has a lot of determination.

You can find out more at her personal and business Facebook pages.

The Pridefest parade was yesterday. I got there late and had only a few minutes in the staging area. Lots of shots from the sidelines, of course, but it wasn't quite as outrageous as in some past years. I'll have some posts about it soon.

Oh no shot from above? Still it's a lovely portrait!

Re. rugby in the USA, I beg to differ. I replied to your comment on VDP!

Had I been four hundred years old I might have said something uninteresting about her tattoos, but as I'm not I will say that I like the portrait of the artist and her artworks on the wall.

Your comment about the challenges of being an art dealer in a medium sized city is also true about the challenges facing the artists.

Very nice portrait. Somehow this art "fits" her.

Her work seems to be influenced by Frieda Kahlo.

I know of an artist who paints in a similar style. Good portrait shot, Bob!

I read the links you posted. She's an amazing and talented lady. Oh, and your image is quite good, too.

She shows a warm personality. Her art is not for me, but there are people for whom it is just the perfect thing.
