Introducing

ALLI CONRAD

Alli Conrad (b.1995) is a Chinese-American contemporary artist living and working in Los Angeles, California specializing in figurative surreal oil paintings.

Conrad’s work actively explores historic eras in varied forms including: paintings, drawings and large scale murals through the lens of modern society. Her body of work actively uses both female and male subjects incorporating a blend of pop culture and contemporary life to represent identity, time and culture – prizing color and symbolism to embody emotion and mood. She confronts the past to give meaning to the present that transports through the evolution of cultural trends that portray the past as not fixed and unchanged, but as connected to the present moment. Identity and time play as key themes across her works through absent features as well as blank and void human-like figures that have been formed by her own imagination, experiences, and long periods of reflection resulting in the contemporary timeless notion that all that any of us want is to be “seen”. She leaves the viewer to look within themselves and identify who they really are, keeping above all “to thine own self be true”. She believes faces are a written language – a story. Through the absence of her blank faced characters, she conveys a timeless imagination and an empty page for one to write their own language.
