Kellie Orr

Represented Artist

Kellie Orr is based in Perth. Using realistic and hyperrealistic oil painting methods, Kellie’s work presents honest observations of social behaviour, personal identity development and western cultural themes. Kellie’s process generally starts with the development of a concept borne from personal experience or observation, and is followed by a lengthy photoshoot to select an image as a reference to paint from. Painting in multiple layers, Kellie can take up to four months to complete a work. Artwork coming soon!
