J Louis

b. 1992 Karlsruhe, Germany.  

BFA, Savannah College of Art & Design, 2015.

Lives and works in New York City.

"At only 26 years of age, New York-based J Louis is a promising, young talent who depicts elegant, female figures, set against energetic, abstracted fields of color. His bravura paintings are studies in contrasts; soft and sensual faces seem to slowly emerge from tempests of forcefully applied swaths of pigment. In J. Louis' works, intimacy and frenzy co-exist to create imagery unlike any the gallery has ever seen before."
