Kim Onyskiw is a self taught artist from the outskirts of Huddersfield, UK, working predominantly in acrylics to create bright and colourful art.
Growing up surrounded by the Yorkshire countryside and with a house constantly full of animals has had a large impact on Kim's paintings. The natural world is often the focus in her work, whether it's scenic landscapes with vivid skies or the whimsical side of animals in her cartoon style pieces.
Kim's work is also influenced by her Ukrainian heritage, with elements such as pysanky and the patterns traditionally used on them inspiring some of her paintings.
Her work is regularly exhibited at Holmfirth Artweek as an invited artist, along with this she is part of the Artweek committee behind organising the event. Kim has also shown her work at the Lawrence Batley Theatre, Huddersfield Art Station, Skelmanthorpe Village Art, The Shevchenko Library and Archive in London, Almond Garden Gallery in Almondbury, Art at the House in Shepley, Bates Mill in Huddersfield and Kirkheaton Art Festival.
Her work has featured as the artwork for Mark Morriss' album “A Flash of Darkness”, comprising of 3 versions for different formats plus an EP cover.
Commissions are always welcome. Whether a personalised portrait of a pet or favourite animal, something similar to a previous painting or a brand new idea done in the artist's style.
