ATLANTA thinks in oil on canvas and through a camera lens also researching new edge materials.
"In order to capture their heroic essence you have to fall in love with those you portrait. Then you start to see." - Atlanta Weiss
Atlanta is a nature lover. Therefore, she wants her creative process in the studio to be sustainable. We are very proud to announce that we have partnered with One Tree Planted! This partnership will plant ONE TREE for every artwork sold. This studio principle applies to all Atlanta’s artworks, be it paintings, drawings or photographs. Every sold artwork plants a tree and helps reforestate the Earth.
