Darlene Kulig (Canadian, b. 1961) Gustav’s Cat, 2015
Darlene Kulig’s vibrant, stylized paintings build on her twenty years’ experience as a graphic designer. “The designer in me loves simple shape and bold color while the painter in me explores light, rhythm, and personal connection,” she says. As an artist, her intention is to illuminate the life force of her subjects. She takes hundreds of photographs when she travels and uses them as a basis for authentic details in her work. Gustav’s Cat is from her series of paintings set in Vienna. Kulig lives in Toronto.
