Kiarra Elliott
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Ditmas Park

Media:Painting; Wood;


ARTIST STATEMENT: I am an eco-conscious oil painter who uses recycled wood as my canvas. Over many years of exploring my craft, I developed a knack for expressing myself through the vibrant use of color, natural resources and portraiture. By repurposing wood materials and turning them into my canvas I am able to turn “trash into treasure” creating distinctive human figures and animal infused portraits. My focus is to promote beauty, strength, realness, and uniqueness in each painting to start a conversation and ignite emotions. Each painting is one of a kind and shares not only a small piece of my own story but the story of those that have come before me and who will proceed me. My goal is to start conversations and ignite emotions. Afrocentric Keyy has become more than just a name and brand, it has become who I am.
