Jana Brike is an artist from Riga (Latvia, small country in the Baltic region of Northern Europe). Inspired by her children book illustrations, the Russian realism, Soviet animation masters or renaissance master’s biblical paintings. She creates powerful and strange imagery of ordinary scene of daily life twisted in some surreal universe. Her paintings are beautifully haunted with a particular interest to identity, sexuality or any emotional landscape.
Jana Brike has exhibited his work all through Europe as well as in several parts of the US.
