Marie-Josè

is an artist based in Los Angeles, Ca.

Born and raised in San Francisco, Marie studied art briefly at the Academy of Art and later Sacramento State before graduating with a Bachelor's in Interior Architecture. Marie began creating art in 2016 with the goal of visualizing black bodies in deep thought, by rendering ways emotion can affect our reality. The path toward emotional freedom and the right to self reflection are what fuels them to create works in a layered process, using acrylic paint and other materials such as origami paper, mesh, or lace to give texture and depth to each piece.  The work of Marie-Josè relies on the notion that the struggle of being vulnerable with others is a relatable phenomenon, and aims to bring those feelings to the surface to promote dialogue and action.
