Angela Kwon is a creative from Atlanta but graduated from Rhode Island School of Design. Kwon likes to consider herself as a "jack of all trades,” with a wide set of skills under her belt and hidden tricks up my sleeves. During her free time, she enjoy picking up new hobbies and skills (at least try to) via YouTube tutorials whether its tattooing, screen printing, or just whipping up a mean omelette.

Zharia Shinn is exploring the distortion of pre-existing visual aesthetics used to depict people of color in her paper and fabric portraits. The portraits merge an internal conversation between stereotypical narratives and realistic depictions. She is interested in broadening the context of conversation that surrounds the visual representation of black men and women through the use of an array of mediums such as, but not limited to; fabric, printed posters, paint swatches, and magazines. The 80’s, Afropunk, Afrofuturism, fashion, dance, and black culture all foster her creative process. Kehinde Wiley, Mickalene Thomas, Euan uglow, and Njideka akunyili crosby are just a few artistic influences of Zharia Shinn’s work, where she expands on creating a new context for her psychological portraits.
