ABOUT

_MG_5486-66.jpg

is a contemporary artist, writer, and photographer.

Powerful, mystical, beautiful – words which describe her colorful yet daring abstractions.

Her work is imbued with emotions and impressions of how she experiences the world. When the brush hits the canvas, high contrast vivid explosions of colors manifest, combined with passive and dominate colors, to bring out the own voice of the artwork.

Jana Larisa describes her working process as a dialogue between herself and the painting. A dialogue with no expectations, rules or concept. It’s more like a playful conversation between seeking and observing, (re-)action and stillness.

 

While she mainly focuses on fine arts, she also dwells in the art of writing.

Poetry in its finest and sometimes funniest forms is presented by "Der Poetomat"; a writing performance, which was founded by Jana Larisa and Majo in 2017.

Finding inspiration in the largest and most dazzling cities in the world, Jana Larisa also captures the breathing moment in photographs. Whether it be architecture, native people or wildlife - the artists tries to captures the moment to give it a long lasting meaning.

The artist lives and works in Hamburg, Germany.
