Lauren YS is a Bay Area artist whose work is influenced by multiple stages of focus, both geographically and in practice. Dynamic bouts in academics, literature and writing, teaching, illustration, and animation led up to her arrival in the street art world; the influences of these phases of her own career add up to a robust style of murals and fine art.
Lauren's work aims to create and populate a misfit wonderland in which imaginary heroines can address the absurdities of reality in the confines of a page or a wall. Influenced by dreams, mythology, and her own personal narrative, Lauren's work is often geared towards pushing a narrative undertone and always has a fantastical aesthetic. Her works invite the viewer to further investigate the line between reality and fantasy.
