Kristiana Parn describes the process she uses to create the original paintings from which the prints are made, saying, "Each piece starts with a bare wood panel, complete with random grain patterns and variations. This natural surface is then saturated with paint, both accentuating and obscuring these marks, in the process creating an atmosphere that is only partly my doing."
Kristiana Pärn was born in Estonia, and now works and lives in New York City. She launched her career in art at the age of seventeen, and studied with Estonian painter Marje Berlokko.
After she graduated from her art studies in Estonia, Kristiana moved to New York City to study animation, attending The School of Visual Arts. In 2006, Kristiana established her own studio in Brooklyn, where she continues to work. Her work is shown throughout the United States as well as abroad.
