Hello Atelier | ‘Making Spaces for Myself’

Share this story

Artist Glyneisha Johnson uses collage art as a way to represent the “dislocated, collaged nature of Black history due to colonialism.” Much of her work comprises of domestic spaces, bright, colorful images that invite you to sit and visit on the front porch. In this episode of Hello Atelier, we discuss the teachers who have been influential in Glyneisha’s life, artists that she looks up to as father figures and her wariness about social media.
