      About the Artist

  • J. (Jie) Li is a contemporary artist based in New York. She studied painting from an early age. After graduating from Parsons School of Design, she worked as a Fashion designer and Consultant before returning to fine art. Since then, Jie has exhibited internationally. Her works are in several private and public collections in China, Japan, Spain, United Kingdom, and United States, including Consulate General of Japan. Jie expresses love, hate, and desire as rooted within the depths of human nature. Such expression is achieved by overlapping figuration and abstraction in her paintings, using the natural changes and disasters that occur in her landscapes as metaphors for human emotions and sensibility.
