Inspired #Author and #EncausticArtist painting with beeswax and fire.
Artist Shima Shanti is a beeswax & fire painter in the ancient art form called Encaustic. Her abstract-impressionistic paintings convey incredible depth and subtlety. Wholly modern yet timeless, each artwork is beautiful in its simplicity. Boldly layering brush strokes of molten wax and natural earth pigment onto a birch panel she creates a rough-yet-refined texture. Then firing with the flame of a torch, she creates deep luminous dimension. The fifty-plus layers of beeswax in each painting draw the viewer beneath the surface. Having gained international recognition, her collections are sought by designers, consultants and art collectors worldwide.
