Artist Bio

Alake Shilling

Alake Shilling is a painter and sculptor based in Los Angeles who creates characters stemming from the artist’s childhood obsession with Lisa Frank and the aesthetic of after-school craft, making the viewer become what she calls “an accessory of comfort.” Shilling takes additional influence from the natural world, collecting images of flowers, many of which are translated into her own visual vocabulary.

Alake Shilling attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago followed by Los Angeles City College. She has had solo presentations at 356 Mission and Maitland Foley in Los Angeles. Shilling has been included in group shows at the Hammer Museum, The Rubel Family Collection, Jeffrey Deitch, Karma International LA, and Steve Turner. Her work is included in the collections of the Hammer Museum and The Rubel Family Collection.
