fortunecat

Part painter, part poet.
Tattoo artist by day,
Illustrator by night.
A lover of nature,
Student of mysticism.

She is a daughter of South-Korean immigrants born and raised in Atlanta, who has lived in Cincinnati and Miami. She began tattooing at age 19, and started seriously painting at 21.

Her diverse upbringing informs her work, which centralizes its themes on multiculturalism, symbolism, animal totems, astrology and mythology. Her work explores the mind and body connection, architecture, the female form.

Mreeuh illustrates in a wide variety of styles, often characterized by bold intricate lettering, geometric patterns, religious symbols, mythological archetypes, goddess forms, flora and fauna, the cosmos and plant life. She explores ancient civilizations in a modern, ethereal context that combines animal, architecture and earth to create exotic and surreal visions that provoke the human imagination.

Inspired by the potential of human anatomy and the supernatural phenomena of the subconscious mind, her paintings are composed as visual portals that evoke feelings of abundance, bliss and wonder. Her work is heavily influenced by nature, biology, western esoterica + eastern philosophy.

The landscapes in her work feature geometric patterns and layers that reveal a deep psychological rhythm that explores the chaos of intimacy and inner tensions of modern society. Chang’s paintings aim to depict the splendor and perseverance of the natural world, evoking a sense of earthly harmony in all living things.

Mreeuh believes in God, prayer, reincarnation, the power of words + life on other planets. Mreeuh does not believe in coincidence, “bad” or luck.
