ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Renata Bosnjak was born in Bosnia and Hercegovina in 1976 and currently lives in Las Vegas, Nevada. She understood the essence of beauty from a very young age, and thus painted her first painting at seven years old; a girl holding a dog. Growing up, Renata always heard stories about her grandfather, an Austrian-German man with an affinity for art. Even though she never met him, those stories carried her through her passion. She continues evolving through all of her personal and professional experiences, developing her love for her craft; and mastering her Artistry.
Renata's art has been in many gallery exhibitions including the Laguna Art Gallery, the Vegas Wonderland Gallery, and New York Art. Her work was displayed in a solo exhibition by Gallery Steiner, in Vienna, Austria. She has received several awards from critically acclaimed art curators that include the Frida Kahlo International Prize award and the International Prize of New York City. Her art has been published in several books and magazines including Current Masters, among others.
Renata has won Awards of Excellence from The Healing Power of ART & ARTISTS and Manhattan Arts International. She received a Special Recognition Membership Art Award in "The Spirit of Resilience" exhibition, curated by Renee Phillips, Director of Manhattan Arts International. Phillips wrote: "Renata Bosnjak's oil paintings of predominantly religious figures and portraits are imbued with a life-affirming presence. She has excelled in using Old Master painting techniques and has developed her own unique style that is enhanced by her sensitivity for her subjects and keen attention to details. Her themes of love, faith, motherhood, and all positive attributes of humanity, generate an immediate visceral impact and healing energy."
