Karl Illini Biography
Karl Illini has gained international reputation for artistic versatility and innovation, based upon his remarkably detailed work in pen and ink, watercolour, acrylic, pencil, copper etching and slate carvings. He has continuously broken new ground, showing a flare for established and new techniques. The Illini Tangential Prismatica, uses inks in rich tonal variations to create an extended prism effect, opening up a whole new range of expression.
Karl’s subject matter ranges from wildlife and nature landscapes to the time honored homes and buildings of North America and Europe. He just recently rediscovered a love for automotive images, first explored as a art student in Germany and Austria during the early 1960’s. His magical studies of America classic automobiles have captured the attention of yet another new audience.
Illini works can be found in private and corporate collections in Canada, the United States, Europe, and Japan. They have been displayed in many North America galleries and exhibits and have brought him numerous awards and prizes and commissions both Canadian and foreign. They are also available in limited edition prints and have been employed extensively on book covers, booklets, brochures, calendars, collectors plates and promotional materials.
The Gallery on the Lake is proud to exhibit Karl’s works.
