Using her densely populated urban environment as a source of inspiration, this ascending West Coast painter continually takes unremarkable subjects and transforms them into breathtaking oils. You can come here to witness her latest display of creative genius.

STUDIO Gallery in downtown San Francisco, California, is the proud host of a dazzling solo exhibition of new paintings by ascending painter Lindsey Kustusch. Since 2009, Kustusch has been climbing the ranks as one of the nation’s premier representational painters, and her latest display is as beautiful as ever.

Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, Kustusch finds continual sources of inspiration in the densely populated streets and alleyways of her urban home, seeking to take relatively mundane and unremarkable views and transform them using her unique creative voice. “Every day I bring something unexpected back to the studio,” she says, “fueling the exploration of new ideas, tools and, techniques, while continuously questioning how, what, and why to paint.”

Kustusch’s works present a colorful and fragmented interpretation of reality, combining sharply rendered birds with expressive, abstract environments. A similar effect is found within her cityscapes, which have a blurred, dreamy atmosphere, but not without indications of acute observation.

Opened on March 16, “Lindsey Kustusch: New Paintings” will hang through April 3. To learn more, visit STUDIO Gallery.
