I’ve been a fan of Sylvia Ji’s for quite some time. Her paintings of women, often in the vain of Dia de los Muertos, evoke beauty and lust in the viewer, while simultaneously hitting home the idea of life and death. The baroque and Parisian feel of her paintings, mixed with Mexican themes, produce images of immense beauty and texture.
Born and raised in San Francisco, CA, Ji eventually went on to receive a Bachelor’s of Fine Art from the Academy of Art University. Ji currently resides in LA, and her work has been featured in galleries and magazines across the world. Follow her on Instagram.
