Los Angeles based Artist Kelly Wall received her bachelors from Otis College of Art and Design in 2012 and completed her Masters at Calarts in 2019. The subjects of Wall’s work vary as much as the medium in which they are portrayed, but more often than not utilize humor to usher in and make palatable themes of solitude and social performance. Wall’s installations take influence from the occult, mundane realities, and mythologies, creating parallel worlds in which to view everyday normalcies from behind a new filter. A multimedia artist whose work includes sculpture, video, performance, and sound, her work is introspective while leaving ample space for the viewer to enter.
