Brandy Kraft is a rising young painter from Miami, Florida. She began painting in 2009 and focuses on a slightly distorted photorealistic style. Her most recent series of oil paintings are about light and movement.
Kraft recently relocated from Stockholm, Sweden, where she spent one year refining her technique in the painting/drawing program at Atelier Stockholm (Swedish Academy for Realist Art).
She is drawn to the sense of mystery that is transposed when trying to grasp the image of an object in motion. This feeling of ambiguity leaves the viewer with seemingly timeless or time suspended in air
Light, the fastest thing known to man, takes on a lethargic personality as it is portrayed listlessly wandering to the viewer’s eye.
Her dynamic and colorful canvases are easily relatable as they capture just a split second of busy city life. Images of riding the subway, crossing the street, and bustling through a crowded subway station strike a connection in the heart of every metropolitan traveler.
