Grace Netanya is an artist and storyteller whose art combines contemporary and traditional ideas to create an art fusion that is both Avant-Garde and introspective.
At a very young age, Grace taught herself to draw in order to communicate stories and characters from her imagination. This is still her motivation; not to depict what can be seen in everyday life, but to take the fantastical from her own mind and turn it into a tangible work of art that others can experience as well.
Years of being homeschooled provided her with the time to focus on theological and philosophical concepts, and today these ideas are the foundation for much of her work.
Grace is interested in putting unique spins on existing styles and finding new ways to push a medium past the conceived limit. She prefers to use mixed-media techniques with ink, graphite, colored pencils and acrylics. However, she loves to discover new mediums and is constantly expanding her repertoire. While she experiments with styles inspired by modern digital art- she always draws by hand.
As Grace’s artistic incentive is to use pictures to express narratives, it’s only natural that one of her artistic outlets would be the graphic novel. She is currently working on a mixed-media series called The Zero Sum Game. She has self-published the first installation of this series on Amazon.com, and you can check it out here.
