Innocence and eroticism, the mysterious intrigue of feminine sensuality, Art Nouveau and Japanese Manga Comics. These are the key points of the artworks of Audrey Kawasaki, a Japanese-American artist, born and raised in Los Angeles, where she currently lives and works.
Audrey is known for her feminine creations, characterized by elegant gestures, a sense of mysterious melancholy, and a delicate beauty. Her young adolescent women figures seem to flutter light in the ether like ghosts with blank expressionless eyes.
She started taking after-school fine art classes in her late teenage years. There she learned the basic foundation of drawing and painting. She attended Pratt Institute in New York after graduating at high school, but left after two years without completion of degree.
She started professionally showing at various art galleries in the US and internationally since 2005. She is a nice and fresh girl, who loves noodles, broth, audiobooks, video games, dancing, the paranormal, and white wine spritzers!
Working on smooth wooden panels, she allows the wood grain to merge with the image, giving the paintings an antique timelessness. But her creativity is expressed also in a transversal way on drawings, murals, objects, bijoux, t-shirts, furnishing objects and of course tattoos!
