KIYOMI QUINN TAYLOR

(b. 1995, New Jersey)

Kiyomi Quinn Taylor (b.1995) is a multimedia artist born and raised in South Orange, New Jersey. Taylor received her BFA from New York University in 2017 and her MFA from Columbia University in 2020. She makes work that examines iconographies of her mixed-race heritage (Black and Japanese) as well as her family’s narrative history. Taylor uses collage and mixed media (painting, drawing, sewing, stop-motion animation and performance) to examine genealogical memory and her own inner, emotional life in the language of allegory and poetry. She has exhibited in and around New York City and Los Angeles, including but not limited to Steve Turner Gallery. Taylor’s work has been covered by The New York Times. She currently lives and works in Brooklyn.
