Kay Tur is a self-taught artist who is currently living and working in Mongolia. Kay creates figurative portraits with cartoonish characteristics in oil medium. A few aspects of her paintings set her work apart from the crowd.

“Face minimalism” as Kay calls it, is the key in her practice. She believes that all parts of a human face are not necessary to convey the emotional state of the particular subject. As a result, her paintings end up having one or two parts such as an eye or a mouth with a “minimal face".

The thick black outlines are prominent in her paintings. Inside the outline, the inner world ( what the character cherishes or what is important to her/him at the moment) of the subject is shown. Kay calls it the “second brain”. Her works are influenced by surrealism, cubism, and collage arts which created a unique species of paintings on its own.
