Artisan Crafted Creator, J’Atelier9/J’A9 (@jatelier9) emerged after her Los Angeles based visionary founder, Janine Tang, began her movement towards a circular environment philosophy by sourcing reclaimed materials into her sustainable fine arts.

J’A9 reshapes the transcendent beauty of innovative repurposing in her fine arts.. allowing her art to transform into an unconventional vessel. She juxtaposes the dichotomy of consumerism against responsible adaptive reuses of reclaimed materials while enhancing the trajectory of repurposing.

Many of the selectively curated eco-conscious repurposed materials utilized into her works have an inherent patina, imperfection, and rawness. Her environmental contribution is commingled into her narrative.

Artisan hand reconstructed, they merge into an insightful tapestry of ethereal, unconventional, whimsical, and sustainability. She experiments with a mixture of flat color palettes, textures, layers, form, while swirling bold hues of expansive contrast, mood, and technique.

J’A9 translates the interconnectedness of the world through her works by highlighting society’s sensationalism of media, global discourse, planet preservation, glorification of materialism, technological dependence, natural habitat, fashion lifestyle, relatable human experiences, and complex facets of duplicity.

She dissects aspects of societal conditioning and programming within the matrix, while also creating a wondrous majestic world of optimism and reflection. Such liberations are expressed yet interpreted through the beholder.
