Kemi Mai

I’m so in love with the stunning digital portraits Kemi Mai creates. At only 18 years of age, this British artist is sure to become a huge success. Each portrait has an intensity that really draws the viewer in. Mai places her female subjects in somewhat surreal settings to create a slightly off-beat images. The recurring turtle necks and plain jumpers create a carefree, yet slightly unsettling element that makes me think these girls are from a different time; certainly not your everyday, ordinary women. I love how captivating her work is and the realistic, digital style works really well will the subject matter. So excited to have found a new favourite! I look forward to seeing how this young artist progresses in her career. To get to know Kemi Mai a bit more, her Tumblr page features lost of Q+A and other insights, which you can check out here.
