Christa Pratt is an artist currently living and working in Brooklyn, NY, where she also studied Fine Arts Painting at Pratt Institute. Born in the Bronx but raised in the South, the artist’s work seeks to confidently and optimistically explore, question, and celebrate the black, femme existential mind while playing with different modes of paint application, visual and psychological perspectives, and modes of subverting “high art”, while also describing domestic and communal homes, heavens, and socio-political solaces for black women and femmes. Through her artwork, she has tried to create a safe and empowering space for black women. She was an an artist-in-residence at the Museum of Arts and Design’s Artist Studios Program in 2017, and was a nominee for the Rema Hort Mann Emerging Artist Grant in 2017. Her work has been featured in exhibitions at Arts East New York, Spring/Break Art Show, and Playground Annex in Brooklyn, NY.
