Women are often given wings to look angelic in art, but Sylvia Ji has found a myriad of ways to incorporate feathers on the ladies in her portraits without taking clichéd routes.

For instance, one depiction features a woman with large feathers as part of a tribal headdress, making her look like a Native American chief. Another image has raven-like feathers covering a lady, making her resemble a harpy. And Sylvia Ji’s multiple paintings of antlered females with feathers hanging from each horn is truly a bizarre sight I’ve never seen before.

Rendering each painting in a stylized realistic manner also gives Ji’s creations certain plausibility, despite its surreal concepts. It’s what sets this Los Angeles-based artist’s work apart from her contemporaries’ productions. Stats for Feather-Cover Female Portraits Trending: Older & Mild
