Born in 1982, in San Francisco, Sylvia Ji definitely stuns with her vivid paintings. She graduated from the Academy of Art University of San Francisco and from there began to be requested in art shows around the U.S.
Her style consists of womens' portraits, these being full of alure and seductive with their poses. Most of their faces are reminiscent of the Mexican calaveras, but some of the paintings have styles from other places, such as Native American tribes or Japan, and some other of the painted women have more of a gothic style. Whatever Sylvia draws turns out awesome, which is why she's definitely an artist one should follow.
And there's still many more of these, so be on the lookout for any new paintings she might release.
