Drawing from fashion, pop art, and contemporary culture, SJ Fuerst’s paintings create a surreal world where the animals are inflatable and the women feel so real you expect them to wink at you. SJ’s work often has dark undercurrents, but it’s carefully entwined with a playful innocence and a fashion seriousness. What truly sets Fuerst’s paintings apart is her fusion of classical and pop sensitivities: the technique may be traditional but the subjects are fresh and contemporary. SJ Fuerst’s work is beautiful and funny, and can be found in private collections all over the world.

SJ Fuerst was born in Connecticut, USA in 1987 and studied painting in New York at Pratt Institute of Art and Design, Florence at the Florence Academy of Art, and finally at the London Atelier of Representational Art, graduating in 2010.Fuerst remained in London until 2016, and now has a studio in Malta.
