Living in colour

‘Colour works like a magic injection of energy.  A Life-in-Colour is adventure, exploration, and passion.  No regrets!’ – Kira Behnert

About

My Bio KIRA BEHNERT is an International mixed media artist based in London.   Her artworks are contrast-rich, colourful expressions of her experience of the world around her: from a childhood in Germany/Switzerland, years of study in the US and France, to her life in cosmopolitan urban London.  An enthusiasm for travel and discovery of different cultures – places and people – has created an open mind to embrace differences – in life and in her works.

Deeply influenced by the ideology ‘anything is possible’, her paintings radiate an energetic, positive outlook on life. She aims to push her artworks towards abstraction, leaving works deliberately open-ended and intriguing to the viewer.

Inspiration & Process People often like to know what inspires me as an artist.  Colour and light come to mind immediately – they play an important role for me and in my artworks.   Growing up in the North of Germany, frequent travels to warmer, more exotic places with bright blue skies and very different sets of vibrant and sun-bleached paints have held a special fascination since childhood.  My artworks are a reflection of my desire for light, warmth, and positivity, no matter how complex or challenging life gets around us.
