Katja Farin

Katja Farin draws people spontaneously. Her compositions begin as rough drawings that she collages together and draws over, often many times, gradually working up to finished pieces. “I see my works as vignettes of an abstract, ongoing performance, revealing a set of experiences through composition, gesture, an attempt at humour - even though no one thinks they’re funny - expression, stages, façades,” the artist says: “a screenshot of the millennial’s current moment.”

Katja Farin (b. 1996) lives and works in Los Angeles. She received a BA in Fine Art from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2018. She has had solo presentations at Lubov (New York) and in lieu (Los Angeles) and has been included in group exhibitions at Wilding Cran (Los Angeles) and Nicodim (Los Angeles).
