Originally from Germany and living in London, KIRA BEHNERT creates mixed media artworks on board or canvas, as well as monotype screen prints. Her artworks are contrast-rich, colourful expressions of her experience of the world around her: from a childhood in Germany, years of study in the US and travels to visually rich countries with rich cultures such as the Middle East, to her life now in cosmopolitan urban London.

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. Complex layers of paint, collage, and texture in her mixed media works reflect the richness of life’s experiences. In every piece she aims to pass on a feeling of spontaneity, enjoying the moment, embracing life.
