Original Art by Kim Leutwyler
Bold, bright, powerful and original LGBTQ-identified & Queer-allied women paintings...
Growing up in the United States, Kim Leutwyler has concurrent bachelor degrees in Studio and Art History from Arizona State University, and additionally graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago with a Painting and Drawing degree. She visited Australia 10 years ago while studying abroad at the University of Auckland in New Zealand and fell in love with Sydney. For the past decade she has always spoken about making it back, so she migrated in Sydney in 2012.
You might recognize Kim Leutwyler’s unique aesthetic. It’s bold, bright and powerful!. Big blocks of colour flow in and out with her subjects, which are predominantly portraits of LGBTQI-identified and queer-allied women. One of her works, the portrait of her good friend, Ollie Henderson "Start the Riot" was nominated as a finalist in the 2015’s Archibald prize, and Leutwyler is quickly gaining a loyal following for her incredible work.
Kim Leutwyler is also passionate about philanthropy, and founded a project, called PhilanthropART, six years ago, to donate a portion of the proceeds of her original artwork sold to various non-profit organisations.
Her idea of “success as an artist” has always been to change the world through artistic vision and funding for non-profit organizations and the arts. She hopes to eventually include other artists in the project.
Leutwyler has also been selected as the winner of the 2016 Midsumma guide cover competition, where her artwork will be featured throughout the festival, as well as throughout various queer media outlets.
