Louise “Ouizi” Jones (formerly Chen) was born and raised in Los Angeles to Shanghainese parents. Her enormous site-specific floral murals can be seen in public spaces throughout the United States, from museums to public parks. Her mural techniques are uniquely informed by her background in drawing and printmaking and her aesthetic style is deeply influenced by her Chinese background. Her obsession with flowers 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.
