Redd Walitzki is creating Art

I am Redd Walitzki, a visual artist, and for the past 13 years I have been living and working as a painter in Seattle. Some of you may be familiar with the delicate laser-cut portraits and ethereal visions I’ve created for gallery shows, and for some of you these may be a new discovery! My work is inspired by the natural world, from the lush-rainforests of the Pacific Northwest to the dazzling abundance of coral reefs and tropical cloud forests. Androgynous and elaborate, these pieces are a marker of life, commemorating a moth’s four week- long flutter in the same celebratory way they do a human being’s ninety-year journey. A fascination with science and technology runs deeply through my art, and I’ve often blurred the lines between mediums including through my use of laser-cutters for the ornate edges of my oil paintings.


After years of working relentless in the studio, the muse of Wanderlust has been tugging at my boot-heels more and more. Slowly, I have transitioned to becoming a full-time creative adventurer, wandering wherever the winds take me next, and using those experiences to fuel artworks. This shift means that for the first time in many years, gallery exhibitions will be less of my sole artistic focus, and I would love to use this platform to share the journey with you, give you updates, inspiration and art from on the road, including tutorials about how to work while traveling, and the challenges and joys that come along with this lifestyle! 



Patreon is a platform that allows creatives to find support and sustenance for their works, especially when the projects fall outside a standard commercial model. Many of you enjoy following the creative journey behind my artwork, from the elaborate photoshoots that inspire each new painting, to the places I explore and artists I meet along the way. Sharing this journey is such a delight, and it would be wonderful to build a community for that here! In February of this year, my sister Roxanna and I set out to explore Paris, Venice, and now for the next two months the shores of Croatia. Frequent collaborators, we inspire each other wherever we go, as she creates music and self-portrait photography, we collaborate on photo shoots, and I make paintings and other experimental works. Here is where you will have a glimpse behind the scenes into all of this madness and beauty, and where you can connect directly with us and our artwork!


Updates will be at least once a week, including paintings in progress, photo-essays, videos, and editorial shoots. Your subscription will make it possible for us to create more beautiful and varied content, and explore exciting locations otherwise out of reach. On this platform, we will share:
  • Works in Progress
  • Artwork Tutorials
  • New Releases by both myself and Roxanna
  • Editorial Photoshoots
  • and Exploration Journals!
I promise that there will be a variety of interesting subjects and experiences as we continue this journey. Your support at any level means the world to us, it will help us continue to discover new beautiful places, and share our unique perspectives of them with you!
