Jana Brike is a 35 year old visual artist and storyteller from Riga, Latvia. Rife with metaphors and symbolism, her beautifully crafted oil paintings are an exploration of growth and transformation, in particular her unique experiences between childhood and womanhood. Inspired by many things, such as her soviet upbringing, folklore fairy tales and classical paintings, Jana's work depicts doe-eyed maidens belonging to adolescent realms, where they bridge the gap between innocence and reality.
Jana has been exhibiting her artworks internationally since the tender age of 15 and holds an undergraduate degree in painting as well as a masters degree in monumental figurative painting from the Art Academy of Latvia.
