Akron native and painter Lizzi Aronhalt has found a niche in her vibrant and colourful cityscape paintings. Ranging in subject matter from ice cream stands to taco trucks to full on city skylines, her work has a lively and almost musical quality. Lizzi Aronhalt’s paintings quickly communicate her love for lines and colours and an appreciation of the architectonic qualities that are found in the urban landscape. Abstract and full of details, Aronhalt’s works always communicate a sense of joy and liveliness.
Lizzi Aronhalt was born and raised in Akron, Ohio and had an affinity for art from a young age and through her time at Akron Firestone High School. As a student of 2-D media and arts education at Miami University, her love for painting and drawing grew. After college she spent time in Montenegro, and it was through her time in Europe that she developed her appreciation for buildings and all things structured.
Upon her return to Akron in 2015, Aronhalt slowly jumped into the art scene of her hometown, seeking to capture the buildings of Akron with the same joy that she did those in Eastern Europe. She is an active artist in Akron and works to collaborate and grow arts through teaching and creating. She has a studio at Summit Artspace on East Market Street in Akron.
Aronhalt’s works have earned her recognition at a variety of juried shows in the region, including multiple honorable mentions and best of show for her work “Lost” at the Evolving Landscapes show at Summit Artspace in 2017. She also serves on the boar of the Artists of Rubber City Organization.
