Kristen Eisenbraun is an oil painter living in the mountains of North Carolina. Her world revolves around art and nature; to her the two are intertwined. She has been creating art for as long as she can remember. After pursuing other avenues while journeying through life such as ranch hand and car mechanic, Kristen always returned to her art. In 2017 she moved to New York City to improve her ability as a figurative artist and advance her career. She studied at New York Academy of Art and Grand Central Atelier. Since then, she has exhibited all across the US as well as Europe. Kristen’s artwork is garnering more excitement and recognition as time goes on.
Artwork Themes & Subject Matter
Kristen Eisenbraun paints the human spirit, sometimes in portraiture and sometimes in surreal landscapes. Her work experiments with the relationship and interaction between the human figure and the natural world. She uses subtle nuances of light and color to capture the hidden magic all around us and expresses all the different moods of nature, from a dark pensive forest to a sparkling field of light. The people that Kristen chooses to paint range from very young to very old. All of her subjects have an unusual beauty, outside the norms of a conventional definition of the word “beautiful”.
A new project is in the works that involves creating her magical paintings on the faces of unwanted musical instruments. This unique substrate adds an extra note to already breathtaking artwork. The project repurposes discarded and “broken” instruments so they can continue to inspire audiences.
Kristen Eisenbraun’s paintings have been featured in notable magazine and online sources including Beautiful Bizarre Magazine, Marvelous Art Magazine, Rapid River Magazine, Medium, The Guide Artist Magazine, Circle Quarterly Art Review, Highlights Hollywood, Cascade A&E, Millhaven Press, Southwest Art.
