Featured Artist: Louis Kahn
Louis is an intensely focused artist, devoted to a painstaking technique of drawing with tiny dots. He has been making art at Cedars Fine Art Studios since 2016. According to people close to him, Louis’s discovery of his talent for expressing himself through art has been very meaningful and beneficial to him. He says this early exposure to art, thanks to his artist father, had a profound effect on his later development as an artist.
His signature pointillistic style grew organically from an early inclination to fill backgrounds with patterns of short lines. The lines became dots, and he soon discovered he could create entire images with dots instead of lines. Louis portrays his subjects with charming straightforwardness. This combines with his visually exciting pointillist technique to result in work that sparkles with energy and wit.
