Lisa Whittington

Mixed-media artist Lisa Whittington creates narrative works rooted in her life experiences and inspired by the rhythmic beats of hip hop, her mother’s piano music, and street art. “I am fearless in my artistic journey, and I have to be,” she says. “I embody a sense of creative responsibility to express and document the vibe, the history, and the experiences of Black people. I am versatile across mediums, but my love is abstract expressionism because of all the places it can go and how it excites me as an artist. Within my body of work, it is not unusual to find figurative work, narratives, as well as nonrepresentational abstracts. Much of my work develops intuitively.”
