Sylvia Ji’s artwork is some of the most striking work in the world today.
A master of capturing the dark side of the beautiful and the sublime.Macabre ‘Day of the Dead’ catrinas intermingle with exotic empresses, with a regal elegance. Ji’s imagery is a visual elixir of life and death, combining sacred symbolism with mystical glamour and opulence. Influenced by historical costumery, Ji incorporates baroque detailing such as luxurious tapestries, ornamental feathers, and gold leafing into her work for a more elaborate and decorative effect.
Sylvia Ji was born in 1982, and raised in San Francisco, California, where she received her BFA at the Academy of Art University. Upon graduation, she relocated to Los Angeles in 2005 where she currently resides.
Ji’s work has been featured in leading gallery exhibitions worldwide, she has been profiled in publications such as Juxtapoz, Trace, and Mesh magazine, and her painting “Dona Dolorosa” graced the cover of the LA Weekly.
