Leni Kae is a contemporary artist and illustrator based in Inner West Sydney, Australia. She has exhibited across Florence, Barcelona, Montreal, London, New York and more. Her colourful artworks are an aesthetic and emotional journey captured through colour, flowing patterns, linework, and dripping paint; infused with the symbolic attributes of the subject and composition. As artist and qualified colour specialist, her work has deep consideration for how colour, flow, structure and semiotics in design can shape a viewer’s emotional experience.. Her works aim to vibrantly interact with viewers, prompting positive associations and memories.

The commonality across each series, is an underlying desire to reinforce connection; both within the self, as well as with others. Whether it is connection to place, the spirit of an animal, or connection to a colour, there is an inherent message to remember our universal connection through emotion, memories, desire, dream.

In 2016 Leni Kae was a finalist in the Brisbane Art Prize, and the Lethbridge Small Art Prize.
