Janne Kearney is an artist based in Geelong, Victoria, Australia.
Janne explains her work by saying, “I am Predominately a figurative and portrait artist, my paintings ask the viewer to disregard preconceived perceptions of people, society and at times reality. Bodywork is a series of paintings of real life tattooed people. The works are full of texture and color created in a contemporary realist manner and could be described as iconoclastic…they challenge or overturn traditional beliefs, customs, and values, consciously utilizing both traditional and innovative techniques, my work explores retro and neo kustome kulture.”
Janne was a 2017 BP Portrait Award Finalist.
