French artist Koralie - I likie.

Her current exhibition, titled Après la Pluie ("After the Rain"), can be seen at NYC's Joshua Liner Gallery.

In Après la Pluie, Koralie lets loose a torrent of colorful geishas, depicted in rainbow wall paintings, hanging scrolls, silkscreen works, and large paintings on canvas hung amid collage and other decoration. While inspired by Japanese visual culture, from thirteenth-century prints to contemporary Manga, the artist also incorporates an eclectic global menu of references, including African and English hairstyles, Russian dolls, Indian folklore, and wallpaper design.

Koralie lives and works in Montpellier, France. Learn more about Koralie at
