February Featured Artist
Perri Rhoden was born in Tacoma and raised in Seattle, WA. Upon graduating from Garfield High School, she moved across the country to attend Howard University in the District of Columbia. During that time she fell in love with figurative painting and celebrating her identity as Black Woman on canvas. The abstracted figures in her work are a combination of references of herself, curvaceous models in media, and everyday life.
Her appreciation for color is intricately woven into her perspective as an abstract artist. She finds success when she does not limit her color palette. Instead, she chooses colors based on her mood and the emotion she wants captured as the essence of the painting. Her most successful art is not sketched ahead of time but is created in the moment. She creates commission work, sells prints, and performs live paintings.
Perri’s artistic process involves merging music, emotion, and visual references into various abstractions on canvas or paper. She is inspired by live music and concerts in the genres of hip-hop, soul, and trap EDM. Her favorite mediums are acrylic paint, ink, watercolor, color pencil, graphite, canvas, and paper. Her most recent work includes glitter, feathers, fabric, and spices. Follow Perri on social media and visit her website to follow her newest work!
