Alli Conrad (b.1995) is a self-taught, Chinese American cosmopolitan artist and muralist currently residing in Los Angeles. She is a visual philosopher, specializing in contemporary modern art. Conrad has taken inspiration from several global cultures and cities such as Tzfat, South Africa, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Los Angeles. Her work is best described as a confluence of eastern and western aesthetic traditions. A selection of her paintings are currently on display at Arushi Arts Gallery and Alma Lledo, as well as in several private collections globally.
Conrad’s works manifest in varied forms, including: paintings, drawings, and large scale murals. Through each medium, Conrad’s art is her own; a linear, whimsical world that she has created from her mind and experiences. She has always painted from self-experience, using men, family, and her cultured childhood as the inspiration. The typically painful and personal subjects in life. The painter’s work reveals an inhabited freedom, rightly unsymmetrical forms, chaotic streaks, vibrant hues and intentional imperfections in her compositions that allow Conrad to express her reality of the imperfect beautiful world. As Conrad’s dad always told her growing up, “to thine own self be true”. If you look closely, you’ll see it…dot dot dot. Each piece is her identity, using her fingerprint on each dot that covers across a majority of her works.
