Cover art Transient Relic by Aunia Kahn.

Aunia Kahn is a self–taught figurative artist, photographer, author, and curator. She combines many disciplines and invariably designs, builds, and executes characters, non–existent places, dreams, illusions, fears and fables into creation, which meld elements of classical and contemporary art. Aunia’s work has constantly evolved; earlier works dealt more with her past, while her more recent creations delve into present emotional conflicts and inspirations.

Her work has garnered several awards, while her national and international exhibitions and residencies range from Santa Fe, Berlin, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, Ireland, Canada, UK, New York, Los Angeles and scores in between. Aunia has curated numerous exhibitions across the country, as well as lectures at colleges and universities.
