About the artist

SJ Fuerst, who was born in Connecticut in 1987, lives and works in Gozo. Fuerst was named by British GQ as one of the 10 best artists working today. Fuerst’s work is beautiful and funny. Drawing from fashion, Pop art, and contemporary culture, Fuerst creates a surreal world where the animals are inflatable and the women feel so real you expect them to wink at you.
The artist studied painting at the Pratt Institute of Art and Design in New York, at the Florence Academy of Art and the London Atelier of Representational Art, graduating in 2010. Fuerst’s can be found in private collections all over the world.
