Graduated from the University of Kaposvar, Kitti Randall is a painter who specialises in portrait art. Kitti initially started painting herself as the main subject of her work, but as she grew as an artist and individual, her focus shifted and she began to focus on other individuals as the primary subject. Kitti strives to express the various characters she paints as her personal feelings about the subject and the individual being portrayed.
1) Which art movement do you consider most influential on your practice?
Realism and modern art.
2) Where do you go and when to make your best art?
Currently, my time for creating is limited due to motherhood duties so it has to take place at home at night but I find working peaceful and look forward to it all day otherwise I probably wouldn’t really stop at all.
3) How do you describe your 'creative process'?
Most of my paintings are photo based so the process starts with taking photos and working from line drawings gradually building it up.

Lucian Freud, Jenny Saville, Alex Kanevsky, Ian Cumberland, Gyula Konkoly, Rita Matis, Vincent Brown.

I have always liked horses so working with them would be a pleasure.

Anything from Jenny Saville.
8) If your dream museum or collection owner came calling, which would it be?

Believe in yourself and if it is your passion you will find a way and succeed.
10) What is your favorite book of all time (fiction or non fiction)?

11) If you could hang or place your artwork in one non traditional art setting, where would that be?
12) What was the biggest lesson your university course or time studying taught you?
Submission and humility.
