Katinka Huang (b.1998, Shanghai, China) Is an artist based in New York City.
Katinka's dual cultured upbringing between the East and the West in a female centric environment, ignited her interest in examining the complexity of the female psyche. Katinka delves into the misconceptions surrounding the female body, and the ongoing sensationalization of women, both historically and presently. Katinka embraces absurdism to capture raw and turbulent emotional states through her depictions of the female figure. She explores the differences in the ideologies of femininity between the East and the West, portraying women in satirical manners with animalistic bodies. In her work, the female body serves as a site of rebellion, challenging the 'sophisticated' portrayals of women across cultures.
