Lauren YS

“Lauren YS is an American artist, based in Bay Area, California, who does mainly street art. She is a multitalented artist, who has a career in teaching, academics, writing and illustration. She paints murals in bold and rebellious manner, creating imaginary worlds full of maverick characters that fight for their noble cause. She is inspired by dreams, symbolism, and mythology.”

“(…)is a leading figure in the vibrant Los Angeles street art and graffiti scene. The artist’s distinctive illustrative style and lush imagery are inspired by their Asian-American roots, comics, and erotic and psychedelic art. YS studied English and art practice at Stanford University, graduating in 2013. They explore sex, gender, and violence in site-specific murals, acrylic paintings, ink drawings, and sculptures. YS’s predilection for fantasy, hybrid characters, and play is exemplified by kitsch-poppaintings like Onsen Psychedelica (2020), in which shape-shifting figures rendered in bold colors bathe and preen. YS has created outdoor and indoor murals at the Long Beach Museum of Art and New York City’s 4 World Trade Center.”
