Jennifer Uman

17 March 2011

Jennifer Uman lives in New York. She has a cat named Chavo and another cat that everyone always forget about. From the day I met her outside the W4th subway station, my life changed and turned orange & purple. Seriously. Her life, style and influences are perfectly summed up in her work. She’s a self-taught painter and she tells stories of people, call centers, iranian superstars, sexy karaoke and free soup. Even Wes Anderson has a piece of her art hanging in his home. In the past year, she’s been working on a great book with illustrator Valerio Vidali. The book is now finished and ready to go! You will like it so much that you’ll start living barefoot.
