The art of being feminine. Sylvia Ji was born in 1982 in San Francisco to artistic parents. 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.

Infused with color and detail, his drawings depict many ages, ethnicities and body types in direct counterpoint to the more traditional “uberman” represented by most of his contemporaries.
