Edina Kinga Agoston Pencil Portrait Artist

Pencil Art
One of my passions since childhood is pencil drawing. Graphite is my best friend. The level of one's artistic skill is coextensive with one's control over graphite. My vision is to reflect emotion by capturing the right subtleties in the graphite hand-drawing process. A result of my efforts, quality has become the cornerstone in every commissioned piece of art I create. Selective pencil portrait art portfolio >>>

My objective is to take the art of creative brilliance (the depth of shading in pencil art and the colors/shapes/design styles in digital art) and trans-subtiating them into refined movements of the body with the additional goals of having fun while staying fit. One of my mottos is the Latin phrase by Roman poet Juvenal (quoted from his famous work titled "Satire X"):

"Mens sana in corpore sano."
"A healthy mind in a healthy body."

- Juvenal, Satire X
(Roman Poet)

 
The other one from the wisdom of the ancient Greek Achaeans:

"Excel and surpass all the others."
"Aristeueien hypereikhon einai allon."

- The Achaeans
(Native Inhabitants of Achaea)

 

My portfolio includes but is not limited to performances at/for:

- AARP Long Island
- Long Island Press
- Long Island Networking Moms
- Madison Square Garden (2015 and 2016)
- Tradeshow Productions USA
- Taught internationally (Europe)

Being animal lover/rescuer I only wish that I could help all suffering animals and adopt all homeless dogs. Dogs are God's gift to man. Their pure hearts and unconditional love keep the Light of God glowing in this dark world. Only The Creator can and will rectify the tremendous sufferings of the Innocent, the Voiceless, who are used, abused, brutally tortured and killed by evil humans. Like-hearted, like-minded to me is the pit bull; being highly intelligent, fiery, fierce, tenacious, standing the ground uncompromising to the death, bursting from love and creative inspiration.
