Biography

"I make work about the female experience, sexuality, identity, space, aliens, heritage, death, monsters, nature, emotions, natural phenomena, the occult, and whatever else I might be obsessing about. I want the viewer to feel unsettled as much as engaged. I make things in an effort to try to process the beautiful shit rocket that is the world around me."

Lauren YS is brilliantly tackling topics like sexuality, death, aliens, monsters, and the occult. Her amazing oeuvre spans from large-scale murals to small prints and paintings.
