Katinka Huang

Katinka Huang (b. 1998, Shanghai, China) is an artist based in New York City.

Katinka's dual-cultured upbringing, navigating between the East and the West within a female-centric environment, ignited her interest in exploring the complexity of the female psyche. She delves into the misconceptions surrounding the female body and the ongoing sensationalization of women, both historically and in the present. Embracing absurdism, Katinka captures raw and turbulent emotional states through her depictions of the female figure. Her work delves into the differences in the ideologies of femininity between the East and the West, portraying women in satirical manners with animalistic bodies. In her paintings, the female body serves as a site of rebellion, challenging the 'sophisticated' portrayals of women across cultures.

Katinka has exhibited in numerous group shows both nationally and internationally, including Salon Beyond Lobotomy, in Paris (2019), General Expenses, in Mexico City (2022), Lux Feminae in Long Island City, NY (2022), Echo Box and After Eden at LatchKey Gallery in NY (2023), Earthquake Relief Benefit Auction at Ethan Cohen Gallery in NY (2023), Really From at NYC Culture Club, NY (2023), Genesis at Chambers Fine Art in upstate NY (2023), A Happy Beginning at Latitude Gallery in NY (2023), Heart of a Tiger, a benefit for Planned Parenthood in NY ( 2023), Lo Que Tú Ves, Galeria Leyendecker, in Tenerife (2023),  Katinka Participated in the Spring Break Art Fair 2023.
