I think of my work as individual vessels, carrying within it its context, while denying the viewer any real, concrete framework.

Fay Ku

About the Artist


Fay Ku is a Brooklyn, New York-based artist creating fantastical and otherworldly drawings inspired by myths, folklore, and her own experiences of displacement. Her drawings are characterized by dense, intricately detailed linework contrasted against large fields of untouched paper. Often depicting an isolated figure, Fay’s characters are unflinching and meet the viewer with direct eye contact and a steadfast gaze.
