Featured Artist: Ouizi

OZ Art NWA and Justkids have partnered to bring artist Ouizi to Bentonville for a large public art installation. The mural is located in downtown Bentonville on the corner of Main and 2nd Streets. Ouizi began her work March 30th and took two weeks to complete.

“I am delighted and humbled to return to Bentonville to paint a new mural in the town square,” said the artist Ouizi. “When I was last here painting inside Crystal Bridges, it was Summer, so I look forward to seeing the city in the Spring!”

Louise Jones (née Chen), aka Ouizi, was born and raised in Santa Monica, Calif. to Shanghainese parents. She is best known for her large-scale floral mural installations which can be seen in public spaces throughout the United States, from museums to public parks. The murals often depict site-specific plants and animals, and the techniques are uniquely informed by her education in drawing and printmaking.

Ouizi’s affinity towards botanical subjects continues to grow, stemming from an early introduction to Georgia O’Keeffe and fond memories of picking figs with her grandmother. She currently lives and works in Detroit.
