Keisha Prioleau-Martin (b.USA) is an artist based in New York City. She earned her BFA at SUNY Purchase in 2017. Keisha's work has been shown across New York, Los Angeles, and Seattle,  including a solo show at Art of Our Century Gallery in New York (head over handlebars) and a lighthearted 2-person show at Ortega y Gasset (Footloose). Keisha is also a co-director at Underdonk in Bushwick, Brooklyn, where her studio resides. Her work has been written about in Hyperallergic, Art Spigel, Artnet, and The Coastal Post: “My work is an unabashed demonstration of the continued existence of love and goodness despite the contemporary socio-political climate of angst and anger. Figures dance, play, dissolve into baths, bike down hills as they lack eye contact, and spiritually separate. The beauty is they are so joyous precisely because either they are unaware they are under observation, or they don't care. The boundaries between figures and the environment are blurred. Painterly marks capture the fluidity of those boundaries as well as the moment of captured undaunted joy. I am interested in the paintings becoming good influences. “ -Keisha Prioleau-Martin
