AOL Artists Adds More Summer Canvases

Aug 8, 2012

We are closing this season's ongoing Summer Series of canvases with two breathtaking paintings by alumni AOL Artist Chrissy Angliker. "Shore Side" and "Sunflower" evoke the heat of August, the beauty of the season, and are dripping with color.

Chrissy Angliker, a Brooklyn-based artist, was born in Zurich, Switzerland, and moved to the states when she was just 16 years old to study fine art at the Walnut Hill School in Natick, Massachusetts. Chrissy later went on to study Industrial Design at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York. Her paintings have been exhibited internationally and she is currently represented by William Bennett gallery in New York and Knoerle & Baettig in Switzerland. Chrissy has been an active member of the AOL Artists community since 2010. She created beloved canvas "Dripping Color" and painted a permanent mural in AOL's San Francisco office that served as inspiration for "Shore Side." We couldn't be happier to have such an incredible artist as a part of our program.
