"When I designed this image I wanted to capture a moment of uncertainty.
I knew I was just embarking on a certain life challenge and the character in my drawing became reflective of my feelings of self-protectiveness.
I included the raven as a companion and also as an element of
wildness and wisdom."
ARTIST • LANI IMRE
Lani paints in a contemporary style that reflects aspects of illustration, graphics, and street art. The bold, defiant characters she creates touch on themes of female identity and sexual fantasy while pushing against contradictory media depictions of femininity. By contrasting the fierce, the sensual and the vulnerable in her work, Lani’s primary objective is to give voice to the desires of women.
Lani continues to create large-scale paintings in her studio and is currently working on illustrations for a graphic novel detailing the rise and fall of
the Amazon tribeswomen. Learn all about her here.
