Maya Kneebone Kim (she/her) is a painter and printmaker with the hopes of better understanding and representing the world. A lot of her interests come from her ethnic background of being Korean and the feeling of being an outsider has fueled my reliance on art as a way to understand her position. Maya's existence is political and therefore her work is political. Being a queer Asian person has informed much of Maya's sense of belonging as well as the places she has found community and safety in.
During her fellowship in June 2022, Maya will explore the link between family and community histories through painting and printmaking.
