Student Creates Plein-Air Oil Paintings of Chicago’s Streets and Landmarks

Luna Prysiazhniuk moved to the United States in 2016 in order to study architecture at Chicago’s Illinois Institute of Technology. She quickly became charmed by the architecture, landscapes, and landmarks, of Chicago, which inspired her to start a series of oil paintings dedicated to the city.

Prysiazhniuk paints Plein-air style, which in return makes her paintings rich in color and enhanced by light-play. In her works, she manages to capture the beauty of both some of iconic Chicago buildings, but also the less known and remote parts of the city that are charming in their own way.

Check out some of Prysiazhniuk’s impressive works below.
