THE WORLD - SOLD
AUNIA KAHN Born on December 5th, 1977 in Michigan, Aunia Kahn is a self taught figurative artist who was raised in an explosive and unpredictable
home environment and sought refuge through creativity and the arts. In 2003 she found herself immersed in a very intimate series to help advance herself
through the healing process of child abuse, but never expected to share her work publicly until she was encouraged to do so. In December 2005 her career
officially launched with her first exhibition which garnered immediate interest in fine art gallery showings across the United States and internationally. Her work
has been shared publicly in hundreds of showings to date.

Kahn's work combines many disciplines, wrapping them into a hybrid art form melding photography, painting and collage. She invariably designs, builds, and
executes characters, non-existent places, dreams, illusions, fears and fables into creation, which meld elements of classical, and contemporary art. Each
work makes use of her own likeness in movie-like stills, dealing in varied taboo and often controversial subject matter to challenge the viewer, their
understanding and preconceived notions; yet she connects through honest feeling and emotions. Aunia’s work has constantly evolved, earlier works dealt
more with her past, while her more recent creations delve into present emotional conflicts and inspirations.

Aunia Kahn is the creator of the
Silver Era Tarot deck and the Lowbrow Tarot Project, is the author of Obvious Remote Chaos, a graphic/web designer and
owner of Aunia Kahn Designs, as well as musician, vocalist and lyricist for her musical side-project AfterChain. She currently resides in Illinois with her four
German Shepherds and two black cats in her secret closet.
