Key Revelation About Akiane’s Prince of Peace Painting Revealed on the Katie Couric Show

Renowned artist, Akiane Kramarik, knows that experiencing visions of Jesus and Heaven changes everything!  Akiane, now 22,  has been helping change the way many people think about Heaven and  life after death since she was 8. It’s not just her paintings, which are awe-inspiring in themselves, but it’s how she came to paint them.


About Akiane's Story

Akiane began having powerful dreams and visions when she was only three years old. She felt compelled to draw what she had seen, even though she didn’t have the vocabulary and didn’t really understand what she was seeing.

By the age of six, she was painting incredibly complex images based on her visions of Jesus and Heaven. The strange thing was that she had not been exposed to any ideas or thoughts about religion – her parents were atheists, she was home-schooled and the family didn’t own a TV or a radio.

Akiane is considered to be one of the world’s top 20 artists, and although a completely self-taught artist, she is also considered to be the world’s first binary genius in realism art and poetry.

“Prince of Peace” by Akiane Kramarik

Akiane’s most famous painting is the “Prince of Peace”, painted in 2003 when she was eight years old. It depicts her vision of the “Likeness of Christ,” and was done using a model – a carpenter who arrived at the family’s door looking for work. Akiane says that she had prayed for two years for the proper face to appear.



Also in 2003, a four-year-old child named Colton Burpo had a near-death experience after being rushed to hospital with a ruptured appendix. Afterwards, he described his experiences of being in heaven where he sat on Jesus’ lap and met pre-deceased family members.

Colton’s family was amazed by the child’s story. He described people and events that he couldn’t possibly have been aware of unless he had actually been to heaven. His father recounted the events in a best-selling book entitled “Heaven is for Real,” which has sold 30 million copies worldwide, and was also produced into a movie.

Colton looked at many artistic likenesses of Jesus over the next few years, hoping to find the one that would be the most accurate depiction. Then, in 2006, Colton’s father found Akiane’s “Prince of Peace” on the Internet, and showed the portrait of Jesus to Colton, who said: “Dad, that one is right!”

In the course of the interview, Akiane talked about her early visions of being in heaven and meeting God, and spoke of how strange this was since she had not even been introduced to the concept of God.

When asked about her parents, Akiane revealed that they are no longer atheists – they believe in God and believe unquestionably in life after death.

Akiane also mentioned that the “Prince of Peace” has been compared to the Shroud of Turin: “Some researches actually analyzed my work and compared the Shroud of Turin with… this painting…they said it was almost 80 to 90 percent accurate.”

What the Future Holds

Now 22, Akiane and her family recently moved from the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia back to the United States and are living near Chicago on a small farm. 

Akiane dreams of opening up an art gallery and an international arts academy for aspiring artist, but in the meantime she is working on another book and finishing a very special new painting to be released on Easter Day 2017!  Stay Tuned for all the details ...

Akiane continues to rise at 3 am every day to do what she loves best, which is to create her wondrous works of art.  Could this be the season that Jesus shows himself to Akiane once again?  Another Jesus painting by Akiane would certainly be a blessing to us all!  Until then ...
