Inspired by copious amounts of Kanye West, Nia Keturah is a college dropout turned rapper turned artist. A self proclaimed “vibe enhancer”–one proactively improving the surrounding energy–her works focus on human connections to spiritual forces. She is best known for her “somewearmasks” portrait series. Keturah’s lyrical and mixed media works have been featured in Phil Taggert and Alice Levine’s BBC Radio 1 show, The Guardian, Hypetrak, Toronto Star, and The Washington Post. Her first solo exhibition, inspired by the cultural contributions of black women, is slated to debut this December in Washington DC.
