Maile Mildrexler is a self-taught artist currently based in Los Angeles, California. She specializes in illustration, oil painting, and digital art, with a specific interest in portraiture and the female body. She finds the most comfort in using bright colors and rich textures while constructing nude versions of herself and her close friends. She explores the relationship women have with their bodies, finding her peers to be the most inspiring muse. She pays close attention to the way society perceives women as ultimately something to monopolize and devour, centering the attention on colorful and pop-surrealistic exaggerations of those around her. She stages her models comfortably with simple props and quiet backgrounds, focusing on the features she finds most intimate, such as lips, eyes and hands.
