Kiya Kalem - Artist
Born in Perth WA, I grew up in a little beach town, South of the River.
I have had an interest in art from a young age. I indulged this fascination with further studies at University learning fine art. After three years I deferred my degree to enter the workforce managing a busy art supply store. I have recently returned to focusing on my art full time and am currently exploring different mediums and styles to better develop my ability to expose my artistic vision.
My work is a blend of styles and techniques, and draws inspiration from artistic styles such as Art Nouveau and Impressionism. I believe art should have a combination of elements, however at its core should be reflective of the individual behind the brush. My art overall is vibrant, patterned and ornate.
