Artist Replete presents ‘Existential Malaise’ by Chicago artist Jenny Vyas.
One of the first pieces from her 2020 collection
Chicago based artist Jenny Vyas by no means followed a traditional path to get her to where she is today. When one door closed, a new one had to be created. Her voyage in art began during 2014 when a relationship went south and an overwhelming feeling to make a life change took over. “During that period of healing, all I could dream about was painting. Having never painted before, you can imagine how daunting this pull was for me.” Years prior, she recognized the gap between what she was doing for a living vs following a true passion. A broken heart became the catalyst to walking away from the corporate world and pursuing something that felt more empowering. Learn more about Jenny in our interview with the artist.
