I am a freelance artist based in New York City who graduated from the University of Wisconsin Madison class of 2020 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree focused in painting and drawing.
As a freelance painter for Staged to Sell Home, I create large abstract acrylic paintings to be hung in New York City apartments that are being staged before being sold. Through this, I have expanded my portfolio to abstract large scale work, and learned about art creation for interior design.
Well versed in many mediums such as acrylic painting, oil painting, drawing, digital painting, Adobe Cloud, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Lightroom, After Effects, Premiere Pro, graphic design, photography and more, I am constantly creating.__
Having the opportunity to study abroad in Florence, Italy at Santa Reparata International School of Art in Spring of 2019 helped broaden my design skills and foster an interest in fashion and design. Summer of 2019, I interned for New York based fashion designer Thakoon Panichgul and assisted on the launch of his new brand Hommegirls, I was fortunate enough to assist on all aspects of magazine, digital and social media production for this brand focused on women wearing mens clothing in a feminine way.
Take More Nudes encourages women to accept and appreciate both the beauty and imperfections in their bodies, by taking more nude photographs of themselves. In continuation of my previous work #SENDNUDES, TAKE MORE NUDES celebrates the female figure through commissioned paintings of these photos so that women can have their bodies as a piece of unique art. People are also asked the accompanying question "Why do you take nudes?" with the answer as the title, and on display next to the painting. There are no requirements or regulations for these photographs and anyone can submit them to my Instagram @byboulukos, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Take More Nudes also includes one-of-a-kind upcycled vintage hand-painted clothing items, for sale on shopbyboulukos.com
Feel free to contact with any questions or to commission a piece!
