Life is harsh
It is worth living
This is what I have learned so far
This is what I try to send people as a crucial message
No matter what art I create
I paint first to tell myself
Lenna Arty started painting since she was devastated by the number of young suicide due to bullying in school in her country. Day after day, she creates in hope that her art can deliver optimistic messages to more range of people. She was also badly bullied by classmates and teachers and her spine was broken by a classmate when she was 13. She is thankful each day that she is alive and can paint. This is why her work that she calls “Colorful Poetry” is relentlessly colorful and positive. She is self-taught in art yet her background as a certified Japanese calligraphy master always affects her method and styles such as her enthusiasm for brushstrokes and shapes and the minimalist composition between her motifs and blank space.
She loves hearing what collectors see from her paintings with their own sensitivities. Her works are held at Four Seasons Hotel Austin (Austin, TX, USA), VIP Villas of The Mirage Hotel (Las Vegas, NV, USA), Musée National des beaux-arts du Québec (Quebec, Canada) and Musée d'Art de Joliette (Quebec, Canada) and held in private collections in the USA, Canada, UK, Australia, France, Germany, Finland, Sweden, Singapore to name a few.
