Who are your favorite KiptonART artists? Why?
I really love the work of Myriam Abdelaziz. I appreciate the opportunity photographers like this provide, allowing me to experience the vitality of far away lands through such exquisite documents.
I wish I had the pleasure of adorning my walls with the paintings of Lucy Kirkman and Mark Perry (a fellow Rhode Islander). The poetic scenes in Kirkman's paintings present a story I really feel I can involve myself in, and the smokey landscapes of Perry's work are so perfectly beautiful and succinct.
