Prak-Sis presents Lily Lihting Li Kostrzewa contemporary paintings, “Childhood, Girlhood, Adulthod” at Prak-Sis Gallery in Chicago. Saturday, March, 23, 2013 is the opening ceremony where you can meet the artist. Born in Taiwan to an accountant executive father and a science school teacher mother, Kostrzewa always wanted to be an artist. She specializes in cross-cultural acrylic painting and her work has been featured in sola and group exhibitions throughout the United States and Canada. ” She also has a deep concern for humanity and true love for nature. Through her senses she creates art to express life’s journey as well as the beauty of nature. Her color is expressive from the influence of study in German Expressionism, and her ink-like brush strokes on her paintings is deep rooted in her Chinese culture and the years of training in Chinese Art,” an excerpt from her website said. This event is free. For a closer look of some of her paintings, visit the website here.
