About the Artist
Gustav Klimt was an Austrian symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession movement. Klimt is noted for his paintings, murals, sketches, and other objets d'art.
Join us and unleash your wild creativity with Gustav Klimt ' Tree of Life'
The Tree of Life is an important symbol used by many theologies, philosophies and mythologies. It signifies the connection between heaven and earth and the underworld, and the same concept is illustrated by Gustav Klimt's famous mural, The Tree of Life, Stoclet Frieze. For Klimt's admirers, the mural also has another significance, being the only landscape created by the artist during his golden period. Klimt used oil painting techniques with gold paint, to create luxurious art pieces, however you will be painting in acrylic, instead! The concept of the tree of life is illustrated by Gustav Klimt's painting, in a bold and original manner. The swirling branches create mythical symbolism, suggesting the perpetuity of life. The branches twist, twirl, turn, spiral and undulate, creating a tangle of strong branches, long vines and fragile threads, an expression of life's complexity.
With its branches reaching for the sky, the tree of life roots into the earth beneath, creating the connection between heaven and earth! The Tree of life is among the most recognisable from Gustav Klimt's career and perfect and accessible theme to for a perfect decorative pre-Christmas painting night!
(The Tree of Life is house in The Museum of Applied Arts, Vienna, Austria and was completed in 1909 and is based on the Art Nouveau (Modern) style in a symbolic painting genre.)
The Tree of Life is one of Klimt's most recognisable paintings and in this wonderful acrylic painting workshop you will be guided to create a likeness or our own take on this fabulous paintings by the Master artist.
