Project Statement:

In my work, I explore themes of metaphysics, healing, and vulnerability. As a motion and graphic designer, I often employ the use of typography combined with abstraction and illustrated forms. My thesis work in graduate school involved a series of projects centered around empathy, a subject I plan to continue to investigate through my fellowship at Spudnik Press Cooperative.

Kianni Bey

Studio Fellow 2021

Kianni Bey’s work investigates the construction of identity in a methodological way, through exploration of personal and familial histories, collaborative world building, and emergent methods of survival from Black women and femme-identified people. Her practice aims to uplift, empower, and exist as a safe space for Black and femme bodied people, driven by a desire to expand the narrative surrounding marginalized lives. Kianni’s practice consists of lens based bodies of work that visualize liberated futures and aesthetics by creating thresholds or portals to other realities.
