marisa kang is a creative anti-hero 11 years into her art career. having never received a formal education in the arts nor mingling in the art gallery world, marisa remains creatively driven, aesthetically sharp, independent, and unique in her process. you can find her exclusively 1/1 paintings and murals across the US.
“my greatest passion in this life is to make aesthetically strong work that stands firm with a timeless quality. i take creating 100% original works with the utmost seriousness and respect for the exclusivity of each art piece… in a modern world where much is copied, pasted, and duplicated with little to no thought...” (2023)
marisa is mostly known for her coined “mosaic pointillism” style where each dot is applied one by one and side by side, either with her pointer finger or spray paint can. she began to develop this style in 2010 with large scale paintings, eventually installing public murals in various areas of the US in the past 5 years. this grueling yet highly meditative process is clear when viewing a marisa kang piece in person and can be felt viscerally.
in 2020 marisa was hand selected by original creative director of def jam records, cey adams, via sophia chang’s dynamic mentoring program unlock her potential. (year 1) she is the first artist recipient of the program.
