About the artist
Graduated in Fine Arts from University of Barcelona. Yiriane Kahn originally studied painting at the Faculty of Arts of the PUCP (Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú), and later moved to Spain where she would complement her artistic training. She has four individual exhibitions, eight bipersonal exhibitions and various group exhibitions in Peru and abroad. Kahn’s artworks are in various private collections in Paris, Italy, Barcelona and the Dominican Republic.
Yiriane Kahn’s artwork is a refuge where the conscious and subconscious collide to reveal different states of matter. As such, the canvas embodies introspection and uses colour as the master tool with which to achieve it. In this process of internal discovery, the artist focuses on a variety of themes: landscape - atmosphere - environment - identity - femininity - birth - transformation - destruction.
Yiriane Kahn’s paintings invite the viewer to participate in a process of introspection while learning about her own. Colour, movement, and form become a reflection of the viewer’s soul.
