About the Artist

File 115736

Queens, New York-based artist Keisha Prioleau-Martin (b. 1995) paints scenes that celebrate radical joy. Working from observation as well as memory, her figures emphasize motion and emotion, exaggerating the physical and psychological characteristics of each with expressive brushstrokes and amplified color. Keisha’s work is an unabashed demonstration of the continued existence of love and goodness.
