SJ Fuerst’s work is beautiful and funny, and can be found in private collections all over the world. Drawing from fashion, pop art, and contemporary culture, Fuerst’s paintings create a surreal world where the animals are inflatable and the women feel so real you expect them to wink at you. SJ’s work often has a dark undercurrent, but it’s carefully entwined with a playful innocence and a fashion seriousness. What truly sets Fuerst’s paintings apart is the fusion of classical and pop sensitivities - the technique may be traditional but the subjects are fresh and contemporary. 

SJ Fuerst studied painting in New York at Pratt Institute School of Art and Design, Florence at the Florence Academy of Art, and finally in London at the London Atelier of Representational Art. Fuerst remained in London for many years, and now has a studio in Malta.

SJ Fuerst is one of the founding memebers of Lot 5 Collective.
