Today we’d like to introduce you to Adrianna Kinal.
Adrianna, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
I’m a Canadian-born American artist.
After earning my degree in Fashion Design, and spending fifteen years in the Los Angeles fashion industry, I decided to follow my childhood ambition of connecting my two passions for art and design. I can be found most days in my studio working on creating custom work for clients, publications and personal experiments.
As an artist, I’m drawn to tactile details from my experience working in the fashion industry and applying them to my love of iconic portraiture.
Can you give our readers some background on your art?
I paint portraits of iconic people who have fabulous style. I can pull inspiration from anywhere whether it be eccentric people, color palette of a fashion collection or an art exhibit I might have been to. These references and inspirations are reflected in my work.
My paintings are my expression, recordings of my take on what is popular in fashion today. My work is fun and vibrant – I hope my work resonates with stylish, like-minded fashion and art loving individuals.
Artists rarely, if ever pursue art for the money. Nonetheless, we all have bills and responsibilities and many aspiring artists are discouraged from pursuing art due to financial reasons. Any advice or thoughts you’d like to share with prospective artists?
Over the years I’ve channeled my creative passion into commercial and freelance projects that helped me be financially stable. I dedicated any spare time to my own artwork. Sometimes I found, working on commercial work would clear my mind so when I returned to my personal work I was much more focused. My advice to those struggling is to prioritize financial stability with a consistent job. That will give an artist the security needed to focus on personal projects.
