What are UGallery artists Rebecca Schweiger and Emily Klima painting? Yup! That’s Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick. The celebrity couple commissioned these two UGallery artists in an episode of “Kourtney and Kim Take New York”. Why? Read on to find out more.
Turns out Rebecca and Emily were chosen out of all the artists in New York to be the two to paint Kourtney and Scott. You can watch the clip from the episode below:
So what’s it like painting a Kardashian? Here is what Rebecca had to say about her moments on the set:
It was an absolute pleasure to welcome Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian to The Art Studio NY, the creative art school in Manhattan that I opened in 2004. The producers of “Kourtney and Kim Take New York” on E! had already done their homework, and they eagerly invited Emily Klima and I to work together as a team to create their artwork.
Scott and Kourtney were wonderful, warm and very engaging. Scott has a great sense of humor, and he had us laughing quite a lot. Their playful relationship was one that was a joy to capture through paintbrushes and color on canvas. Creating a portrait or commission of any kind requires me to connect on a more personal level with my clients. It was a fun and laughter-filled experience to learn more about Kourtney and Scott, which we eventually translated onto canvas.
From the moment they entered my art studio on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, The Art Studio NY, the cameras were rolling. We discussed the style of portrait they were hoping for, and while Kourtney preferred a more modern and abstract approach to artwork, Scott was excited about a classical, realistic approach. Both Emily and I are classically trained artists that now paint with very expressive, semi-abstract styles, so we were excited to return to our artistic roots with this large canvas that was needed in FOUR DAYS! What typically takes an artist many months, Emily and I were motivated to create an elegant, beautiful portrait for Kourtney and Scott to enjoy for years to come.
Out of all of the talented artists in New York City, being the selected artists on Kourtney and Kim Take New York was a real honor and a total blast!
