/ about.

JENEM (Jennifer Liza Hongo) is an Experimental artist residing in Tokyo, Japan.

Her art deals with physical, emotional, and spiritual transformation, and the beauty and intricacies of feeling.

Atmospheric and progressive in nature, her works encompass a realm whose subjects are shrouded in enigma. Marked by the presence of haunting entities, they inhabit an isolated void, at times surrendering themselves to it and giving way to abstraction.


Perhaps due to their experiences, they've found a way to adapt, persist, or peacefully-coexist.


She draws inspiration from cinematography and soundscapes, a background in fashion and modeling, as well as the human experience.


Active in the Tokyo art and nightlife scene, she has participated in live painting events such as Tokyo Love Hotels at Sankey's Penthouse, film and dance projects, and exhibited alongside local and international artists in “Transitions” at the ICA in Tokyo, Japan, 2019. In 2023 JENEM organized and exhibited in "Tokyo - DIVERGENCE" a group exhibition highlighting 9 emerging international artists and photographers in the Tokyo community.  Her series "No Longer Part of the Landscape" , comprised of acrylic works on wood panel, were displayed at Tokyo - DIVERGENCE at Gallery Le DECO in Shibuya July 11-16 2023.  Soon thereafter, from July 26-31 2023, she participated in the Harajuku group exhibition "Eunoia" at the gallery Studio CIEN.  Her latest works produced for Eunoia introduced undulating shifts of pinks and crimson, brightened by the white void and entangled in black threads of shadow which creep into the works.


She works primarily in acrylic, sumi/watercolor, and digital terrain.
