KITTLESON TO UNLEASH LATEST PET ART
Jon Kittleson of Austin, MN will be at Austin Artworks Festival August 26th & 27th 2023.
Kittleson’s vibrant artwork is in collections of pet lovers across Southeast Minnesota and Northeast Iowa. His brilliant use of color makes it seem as though man’s best friend will jump right off the paper and give you a big kiss. Kittleson says his art “represents the power to overcome any challenge, mental or physical.” His art talent flourished after becoming partially paralyzed in a school wrestling accident. Dogs are a favorite subject because his own two dogs, Rosco and Ellie, motivate him to stay active and keep a positive outlook.
Kittleson enjoys using Sharpie oil based paint markers as an art medium because they offer a wide range of colors and they are simple to control with regards to his manual dexterity challenges. He chooses bright color combinations that work together to create movement and bring the subject to life.
