Born in 1982, a native of San Francisco, Sylvia Ji’s artistic ability is akin to another time and place. Her work encapsulates an alluring beauty that is both cutting edge and timeless. Hauntingly beautiful images brimming with sexual provocation mix with a sense of consternation, hinting that all is not as well as it may initially appear.
Some of her paintings are symbolic reflections of herself, portraits of people she knows or just nameless faces set in a landscape of fleeting and decaying beauty. She graduated with distinction from the Academy of Art University of San Francisco with a BFA in traditional 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 onslaught of numerous shows across the nation. She currently resides in Southern California.
