Coloring the day away at the age of four, Irene Veltman (1991) knew very young she wanted to become an artist. As a teenager she became fascinated by the Old Masters and spent hours unraveling the technique of their artworks. Her work follows a long tradition of figurative drawing and painting to capture the zeitgeist. Through soft color nuances that induce a dimmed daylight, the subjects are mostly placed in a stilled composition. With refined brush strokes, she explores contemporary themes such as femininity, the uncanny, reflection and the duality of social media.
