Does the art on your walls make others stop and stare? Is the art you own an enchanting conversation piece when you have a party or group of friends over? Do you like being one of the first collectors who has the eye to spot a popular artist before they are well known? Does the art you own seem to pull you in, moving and changing throughout the day as a wonderful escape?
Fortunately, it's easy to be the owner of a one of a kind original painting from Karina Keri-Matuszak. Just bid on an auction, buy from my store, or contact me for a commissioned piece!
The day I saw my first copper painting in 2005 was the day my art was taken to a whole other level. I'm so glad I discovered this rare and unique art form. I'm thrilled to be able to bring this type of art to you too, so that you can experience it for yourself!
Atlanta CopperWorks Studio features the art of Karina Keri-Matuszak.
My name is Karina Keri-Matuszak. I specialize in Copper Art. Copper Art is very unusual. It has a shimmering stained glass feel, but is much more urban and rough. It is very rustic, and retains hammer marks and nails. Copper Art takes on a completely different look based on the lighting and the reflective quality of the copper. It almost seems to move and change. I'm sure you will enjoy this art as much as I enjoyed creating it!
Karina studied art at the American College for the Applied Arts in the U.S. and London in the early 1990s. After designing wedding gowns for 7 years, she now uses her textile skills to work with the copper. She exhibits her work all over the country and sells online.
