Working Girlz - Katy Soljak

Known in Aotearoa as a songwriter, Soljak is new to painting, with a naive style. Her paintings are inspired by the vulnerability and beauty of working girls in their dangerous lifestyle throughout the world.

Soljak reflects on the working girls she saw every day when she drove down Pico Boulevard in Los Angeles. These girls of the street were later the subject of Katy’s song; ‘Sex 4 Sale’, released in New Zealand in 2013. Soljak uses bold and dramatic acrylic colours to represent this dangerous subject and integrates textile materials from different countries on her canvases.
