About the Artist:

Aicy Karbstein

Aicy Karbstein is a contemporary American painter, born in Brazil. She paints from her heart and mind, and her positive approach to life helps her paintings express happiness, beauty and harmony.


As a teenager, she took art classes, including drawing of live models, at 'Pinacoteca do Estado de Sao Paulo'. She then went on to study Advertising, and worked as an intern in the Creation Department of an Ad Agency doing illustrations. Aicy’s fascination for painting has grown exponentially since then, with her passion fanned by exposure to several style of paintings, frequent visits to the Louvre in Paris, the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC, among others.


While a business owner in the music entertainment field for two decades, she painted for hobby and as a healing meditative technique to relax and recover from the stress of the business world. After closing down her music business, she felt compelled to focus exclusively on fine art, and has compiled a large collection, painting professionally since 2014. Relying on various techniques to achieve her goals, a combination of Expressionism and Abstract are visible in some of her works, although she is currently known for her many Representational paintings.


Most of her works are in private art collections throughout the USA and in Brazil.

Those interested in viewing her full portfolio and the vast array of paintings and photographs, please visit the Gallery page, or at the Shopping page.
