Kira Schnitzler

Kira Schnitzler is a senior in studio practice at the University of Illinois with a concentration in painting. She is a figurative artist and is best known online for her series of single line drawings, which tenderly depict lovers intertwined in a kiss.

Her oil paintings are large scale, and heavily deal with allegories and mythical narratives that seek to explore bodies of spiritual knowledge and the nature of consciousness.

Schnitzler is currently working on her BFA thesis, entitled Intimate Connection, which will be on display in two separate exhibitions in April.
