Meet The Artist
Ekemini Nkanta is a 19-year-old artist exploring alternatives to the traditional canvas. She strives to make people feel, whether it be through paintings or interactive digital experiences. Her acrylic work lives on sneakers, denim jeans, t-shirts and (soon) a mannequin head, while her digital pieces rely on sensors, touch and code to generate art in real-time. Ekemini lives in NYC and is studying interactive media at CUNY New York City College of Technology.
