Absolutely intoxicating. Lioba Brückner will do nothing short of mesmerise you with her romantic pop-realistic portraiture.
I am in this kind of hazy dreamlike state, quietly being led through a secret Eden, the garden blossoming before my very eyes. It is full of life, fluttering with magic, of peace and love. I am allowed to peak through the brush to see the women there; they are from all walks of life, enchantingly beautiful and serene, composed and self-assured. Some have small creatures by their sides, others settle within the blooms, all of them are divine within their own skin.
Lioba Brückner was born in 1988 is a painter based in Oberhausen, Germany. Lioba’s father had a creative talent and introduced her to drawing and it soon became her passion. Her dreams took a step into reality at 17 when she met her partner who was already living the life as an artist. He was Lioba’s first teacher. She was then lucky enough to study with Markus Lüpertz and received her diploma under Tony Cragg at the academy of arts in Düsseldorf 2012.
Directly from art school Lioba had her moments of doubt concerning the art world and took a position as a programmer in a local company. Though she could not contain the “itch” for very long and was soon committing herself to becoming a professional independent artist.
Liobas’ work is inspired by the beauty in every woman. In how they look in the supermarket, in a restaurant or passing by in the street. She notices how they walk, how they smile, how their eyes are shaped and what form their lips have.
Lioba’s garden is also an artistic resource: “I’ve almost painted every flower that I’ve ever owned and looking at my garden calms my mind while I paint and makes me happy.” She states.
If you are a budding artist yourself or just interested in learning more about Lioba’s technique, lucky for us all she has her own Youtube channel full of tutorials on how to paint with watercolours, oils, color pencils, and acrylics!
One way or another, do not for a second think to bypass this incredibly talented artist!
She is Art. She is Lioba Brückner.
