Chromakane is Jessie Cohen, a contemporary artist currently based in London. Jessie creates intricate illustrative art in the blackwork style, using solid planes of black ink. Each new piece begins as a pen and ink hand drawing, before being rendered digitally or reproduced to fine art quality. Chromakane merges mythological and spiritual storytelling from Eastern and Western cultures to create a new visual identity, influenced by Jessie’s own heritage.
Since launching in 2020, Chromakane has grown into an independent artist with international reach: she is represented by global galleries including Rise Art and The Artling; her prints and apparel are available with numerous partners including Fy! and Not On The High Street; and she has been featured with the likes of Aesthetica, Art Reveal and Country Homes & Interiors magazines. She is also a People of Print member who trades with established London markets including Canopy, Crafty Fox and Truman Markets.
