Artist to showcase work at NYC gallery during Fashion Week

on Monday,August 23,2010 21:08


Aspiring artists have many career options. Those who have creative talents may pursue a job as an illustrator, cartoonist, sculptor, painter or restorer. These professionals often graduate from design programs at art schools in order to improve their skills and find employment.

One artist, Christena Brostrom, began her career as an interior designer and now has a collection of art that will be featured in the Artist Trifecta Gallery in New York City. The opening of her series will be in conjunction with a fashion show which will be held at the gallery in order to celebrate New York Fashion Week.

According to Brostrom, her art is inspired by fashion, jewelry, music, nature and travel. Her latest works are inspired by the runways of Paris.

"I like to form image collages of experiences that have had an impact on my life that year, or month and then just meld it all into one canvas of passion," she said. "My works, concept images and details represent this fusion of my life in abstract form and coloring."

Those who wish to pursue a career in art may benefit from attending galleries or fashion shows as a means of inspiration.
