The mixed media and self-taught artist, Lauren Brevner, notes her Japanese heritage and apprenticeship under Sin Nakayamal as influences.
Offering vibrant portraitures of women decorated in Japanese motifs, Brevner appropriates Japanese gold leaf, yuzen and washi paper in addition to acrylics to further embolden textile patterns. With clear elements of fashion in both style and material, Brevner brings a contemporary flair to 19th century Japanese art. [via Hifructose]
