About Karen Spiro

I find lonely chairs that I recycle into original, one-of-a-kind functional artworks; no two are alike. The style of each chair borrows the style of an artist: from Vincent Van Gogh, Frieda Kahlo, René Magritte, Henri Rousseau, Andy Warhol. Each chair features a portrait from the artist's body of work. I have some ready-made inventory, but most of the work is done by commission. Artisanal Chairs is part of Primarily Portraits, my firm that matches portrait subjects with artists who can reveal the soul.
