Sylvia Ji was born in 1982 in San Francisco to artistic parents. Ji's interest in art
was implanted at a very young age when she would look through her mother's sketchbooks
and watch her father paint. In her art, she explores themes of beauty, sexual provocation,
and social notions of femininity juxtaposed against the dystopian reality of modern
cities to create highly charged paintings of women. Some of her paintings are symbolic
reflections of herself, portraits of people she knows or just nameless faces set in a
landscape of fleeting beauty. She graduated with distinction in 2005 from the Academy
of Art University of San Francisco with a Bachelors in illustration and already had
her first ambitious and successful solo show while still in her last year of school.
Since then she has been in high demand, keeping continuously engaged in an onslought
of numerous shows on the West Coast. Currently, she has works on display in both San
Francisco and Los Angeles galleries. Visit frequently to stay updated on future shows
for this emerging and promising artist.
