Russian-born artist debuts in Niagara Fallsby jmaloni
Wine on Third hosted another of its receptions for local artists on Thursday, May 16, as Russian-born artist Kristina Fekhtman visited for an opening exhibit of her water color and fashion illustrations.
Fekhtman, who lived in Russia until 2010, today works out of her North Tonawanda studio. She says her illustrations are self-developed and heavily influenced by such artists as Sina Perrsson, David Downton and Alphonse Mucha. Her work, Fekhtman adds, reflects a passion lying in the intricacies of the human form and its endless variations in shape and style.
"Fashion and music have been my greatest passion," she said.
Fekhtman's work is now on display at Wine on Third, 501 Third St., Niagara Falls, and can be viewed on Facebook. (photos by Terry Duffy)
