A new art exhibit featuring local artist Kimara London is now on display at Columbia Metropolitan Airport (CAE).
“We’re especially excited about this exhibit as Kimara is a member of our CAE team and works as a ticket agent with United Airlines. Travelers can view her artwork located in the connector between the main lobby and the departure gates,” a CAE spokesperson said.
As a professional portrait artist, painter, and ceramist, Kimara has provided the Carolinas with her “gift” of creating life-like designs through her business Kimara London Fine Art. She is a graduate of the University of South Carolina with a bachelor’s in studio art. Her murals can be seen at local businesses in Columbia, and she’s also completed several commissioned murals.
Specializing in portrait art, Kimara creates realistic drawings from personal sittings as well as from photos. She expresses her creativity in media such as oil, acrylic and charcoal and connects her subject matter to the canvas in a way that brings it alive and captures viewers’ attention. Kimara believes that everyone has a God-given gift and “it’s just a matter of discovering it.”
