ABOUT THIS PIECE
ABOUT THE ARTIST
LaKesha Lee was born in Birmingham, AL, where she currently resides. She recently received acceptance into the MFA program at the University of Tennessee- Knoxville. She considers herself an artist that aspires to tell a story about the history of African Americans, death, and her past through nature. Her most recent work, “Evolving,” is on display at the Alpharetta Arts Center in Alpharetta, GA. She is interested in constructing and destructing the figures to create a new narrative for the viewer. LaKesha is passionate about the process of creating work, from the layering of the images to the exploration of grounds. She hopes that her work will help inspire others to unbox their past.
