The Art of Audrey Kawasaki

Audrey Kawasaki is an Los Angeles, California based artist whose works are contradictions within themselves. Her pieces are both innocent and erotic; attractive yet disturbing. Audrey’s precise technical style is at once influenced by both manga comics and Art Nouveau. Her sharp graphic imagery is combined with the natural grain of the wood panels she paints on, bringing an unexpected warmth to enigmatic subject matter.

The figures she paints are seductive and contain an air of melancholy. They exist in their own sensually esoteric realm, yet at the same time present a sense of accessibility that draws the observer to them. These mysterious young women captivate with the direct stare of seductive eyes.
