Kari Kant is a Washington, DC-based professional artist recognized for her vibrancy and texture working primarily with acrylics on canvas and wooden panels. Known as the “Artist to the Politicos”, her art work is displayed in many of the most prominent homes and office spaces in the District.
Kant, born and raised near the Gulf of Mexico in the city of Fairhope, Alabama, found early inspiration in the rustic, natural beauty of her childhood surroundings. Her technique involves a unique combination of mediums including pumice stone and modeling & molding paste used in combination with acrylic paints.
Kant applies these materials directly to canvas using knives and brushes as she adds multiple layers to each bespoke piece of art work. The result is a tactile and detailed painting that presents itself differently from all visible angles.
Recognized for her work supporting high profile executives in the fields of lobbying and international business development, Kant is a rare talent using her free time to develop works of art celebrated by Washington’s elite.
