Karen Kilimnik (Born: 1955 in Philadelphia). Lives and works in Philadelpiha.
Ms. Kilimnik is educated from Temple University, Philadelphia. She is known for her bold colours, loose brushwork and incorporation of celebrities in old-masters studies.But she is also known for her many installations, which reflect a young viewpoint of the modern society.
Kilimnik has become a well-known and collected artist, and ha s exhibited in many countries on the continent, as well as at home in the US. In the late 80’s, the artist presented patently punk and destructive installation art. Later on, her works are filled with literary tradition of gothic mystic, fairytales and scenes with pop-cult figures such as Paris Hilton, and Leonardo DiCaprio, dressed in historical clothing.
