Alexis Jang
(KO, 1985)

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Alexis Jang is a Korean artist born in 1985 currently working and living in Berlin.

Jang's quiet yet playful paintings are meditations on the subconscious and the relationships one has with themselves and others. Using lots of blues, depicting mostly night scenes with often solitary figures, her work is an illustration of the longing that one might feel when life stops spinning and pulls one into more of a serene headspace.

The artist's life-long curiosity and passion for womanhood also play a big part thematically in her work. Seemingly lost in thought or caressed by light, these women are quietly taking up space and demanding to exist as they are instead of making themselves more palatable for the world to see.
