Lindsey Kustusch is an artist with a talent for formulating stunning atmospheric paintings who earned accreditation both at the 'American Academy of Art' in Chicago and the 'Academy of Art University' in San Francisco, as well as a series of impressive awards.

Her works that focus on urban landscapes are especially revealing of her ability as she is able to capture specific details that portray not just a realistic reimagining, but also a certain feeling that one's made to feel while there.

She does this by stirring dark tones together which are contrasted starkly with light that seems to shine right off the canvas -- situating the viewer in a dreamlike reality. Her atmospheric paintings therefore inspire those who look to consider life in a realm that might be far off from what they're used to, however her immaculate representations make doing so quite easy.
