"To capture their inner essence you have to fall in love with those you portrait. Then you start to see."
Atlanta Weiss – artist
Atlanta is a visual artist researching the topic of IDENTITY, IMAGE and REPUTATION. She thinks in oil on canvas and through a camera lens, combined with new edge materials.
In her portraits she aligns two features: the inner beauty of her models and her own understanding of the virtues and aesthetics of a human being.
Born into a family of artists and art entrepreneurs, she has been focusing on portrait painting from an early age. Her first acknowledgment by world’s best photographers has been an award by the National Geographic Society in the category ‘People’ during her studies at Peter Behrens School of Arts (Dusseldorf, Germany).
With her cultural background enriched by Russia and the United Kingdom, her studio is currently located in Cologne, Germany.
