After several years as a Chicago fashion photographer, Kayoua Xiong began a 90 day adventure around the US to find inspiration for her work. She currently resides in LA, but continues to travel to be inspired by and collaborate with designers and artists on professional and personal projects. Kayoua’s inspiration comes from both classic artists and avant-garde fashion designers, and she employs a fine-art background to enhance her photography, carefully crafting with light and the human form.

“This is my art, I love to paint only the excess, the unconstrained, the raw unbridled human emotion, the blurring of surreal beauty into twisted pleasures and tainted seduction, desire-lust-misery-agony-joy- images that reach wickedly into a more primitive, deep, hidden, psyche.” -Kayoua Xiong
