Grace Kisa

Born in Nairobi, Kenya, Grace Kisa spent her formative years in Kenya, Ethiopia, Botswana, Canada, then McLean, Virginia, before settling in Atlanta. She moved to Atlanta to study at The Art Institute of Atlanta, after which she started the pursuit of a career in art. Kisa works in several mediums, including but not limited to painting, sculpture, printmaking, and photography. Her art reflects the relationship between herself and the world around us. Through this work, she explores the connections between personal, cultural, national, and global perspectives. In this way, her work serves as both a bridge and a conduit. Her process is a combination of creative play and problem-solving while exploring concepts of identity, migration, acculturation, and home and how they relate to notions of space, comfort, and alienation.
