Kime Buzzelli is a mixed-media artist working in the high desert. Buzzelli has worked extensively in fashion, as a costume designer and as the owner/curator of the delightful “art-to-wear” boutique, The End in Yucca Valley, CA. Buzzelli studied painting and fashion illustration, receiving a BFA and BAE from Ohio State University. Kime moved to California after college to work as a vintage clothing designer. After 12 years in Los Angeles, she landed in Yucca Valley where she opened her shop, The End – which features Kime’s art as well as vintage and designer clothes, jewelry, books and unique gift items.
Buzzelli has created art installations and paintings for gallery shows in Japan, LA, NYC, Miami & others. Her passion for creating characters and spaces is found in her paintings and extends to her costume and retail projects. Her artwork has been featured in various magazines including Juxtapoz, Flaunt, Beautiful Decay, Swindle, Lula, Nylon, W, The Face, Paper Mag, and Bust.
Kime describes her art as being about reaching a meditative state where her heroines can intercept layered wor lds of clashing colors and patterns. Often her paintings explore the visual vocabulary of daydreams, desire, voyeurism, insomnia, fashion, music, and memories along the way. Found objects and fabric installations create spaces born out of a need to create order out of clutter, beauty out of chaos and otherworldly dreamscapes as an escape from the mundane, monochromatic cult of minimalism.
