Inke Essenhigh is an American Painter who studied at Columbus College of Art and Design in Ohio and the School of Visual Arts in New York. She has exhibited her work all over the U.S., from New York to San Fransisco, and all over the world, from Sao Paolo, to Belgium, to London. With her unique "pop surrealism" style, she inspired movement of young painters in New York, some of which include Cecily Brown, Damien Loeb and Will Cotton. Her style is exemplified in the painting to the right, "Optimistic Horse and Rider." Her use of flat colors and cartoon-like painting style provide a great flow.
