”Artisan Crafted” Visual Creator, J’Atelier9 ™️ (IG: @jatelier9), was founded by Janine Tang, based in Los Angeles, California.

JANINE TANG is a Hong Kong born sustainable fine artist, whom grew up in Southern California. She graduated from UCLA with a Bachelor of Arts in Business Economics.

Her deeply rooted humble & cultural upbringing conditioned her to reuse & repurpose at an early age. This philosophy has extended over to her sustainable mindfulness. Her discipline focuses on her movement towards a "circular environmental cycle" by sourcing reclaimed materials into her practice to heighten her impact on carbon footprint.

Growing up as a Chinese American and influenced by discrimination and socio-economic disparities, she dissects aspects of societal programming within the matrix, while creating a wondrous majestic world of optimism and reflection.

Janine Tang disrupts the transcendent beauty of innovative repurposing in her works by merging vibrant hues, visual forms, fluid shapes, and mindful techniques. She is known to blend pigmented acrylic paints and textured paste onto layers of newsprint, ephemera, recycled bags, and repurposed boards - while juxtaposing the dichotomy of consumerism against responsible adaptive reuses of sustainable elements.

She allows her selectively curated eco-conscious materials and her intuitive process to reach their pinnacle of inherent patina, imperfection, or rawness. Her environmental contribution is commingled into her narrative, as her art speaks of her personal experiences and traditional conquests.

Janine Tang merges the interconnectedness of the world through her awareness by voicing society’s sensationalism of media, global discourse, planet preservation, glorification of materialism, universal human emotions, and complex facets of duplicity throughout her art.

Artisan hand crafted and reconstructed, her works merge into an insightful tapestry of ethereal, unconventional, whimsical, and sustainable. She experiments with a mixture of flat color palettes, unusual textures, and composition, while swirling bold hues of expansive contrast, mood, and process.

Her artwork has been exhibited at Huntington Beach Art Center and Laguna Art Gallery in 2023. She has been involved in museum group exhibits at Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum for the 22nd Japan International Art Exchange Exhibition curated by Julienne Johnson, where she will donate AIR-NERGY to the International Art Exchange Chairman for his permanent collection; and at Sasse Museum for the SeeMe exhibition juried by Deena Capparelli.

Janine Tang was selected as the top finalists in 2 categories for the Touch of Blue International Expo: https://zomagazine.com/blue-expo-final-judging
