Ouizi
Detroit, Michigan
Louise Chen aka Ouizi works primarily on a large scale, with subject matter that is in in the realm of ornament and design. Her primary practice stemmed from working as an illustrator and fabricator in Los Angeles, and has since transitioned to murals upon her relocation to Detroit in 2013. With her highly recognized style, her public artworks in Detroit have become so popular that it has brought her opportunities to paint all over the country and occasionally abroad. She is currently working on experimenting with different ideas in her studio and working towards opening a co-operative creative space on the East side of Detroit where she resides.

Her aesthetic is inspired by folk, indigenous, and spiritual art, as well as patterns found in nature, and patterns from textiles and wallpaper. What she chooses as her main subject is often what other artists would use in the margins as she places a lot of value on the edges. Mark making and craftsmanship are critical to appreciating her work, both are important to her as she makes a lot of effort in producing harmony between line work, composition, and color. She is always working towards masterful execution in all aspects of her practice, and considers herself more of an artisan than an artist.
