If you've been to Chicago Truborn anytime in the last 6 years, chances are you've seen Karl's work. From dark surrealism to portraits, animals, and still life - his work is largely characterized by a highly recognizable quality unique to his artistry.
Many of you know our reputation with and history when it comes to Karl's paintings : long story short, we can't hold on to them! More often than not, Karl will drop off a new painting and, before it's even listed, it finds a home within hours, sometimes minutes. No exaggeration - it's a running joke at this point!
So, it was quite an easy decision to provide this platform for Karl to debut his first solo show in the city of Chicago. And yes, there will be chickens!! Expect a wide range of price points to accommodate collectors at all levels - from mini's to larger works, framed and unframed. As always, two new window installations will debut the night of the opening.
This event is free to attend and open to the public!!
About the artist:
Born in 1975, Karl Jahnke is a full time, self taught, artist living in the suburbs of Chicago where he paints, sculpts, and raises ungrateful chickens. Most of whom are the subjects of his paintings. Karl paints primarily with oils and is interested in melding still life and portraiture with victorian macabre.
