Kelly Wall (b. 1990 Los Angeles, CA) received a BFA in Sculpture from Otis College of Art and Design and an MFA from California Institute of the Arts. Across a myriad of subjects and media, Wall’s work often elicits nostalgia, using memory-loaded objects to invite viewers to project themselves into the work. Wall tends to explore traditional art mediums with a contemporary approach, with a recent focus on stained glass as the medium to explore optics, emotional perception, and perspective. California, as place and idea, is paramount in Wall’s work.
Wall has had two solo shows at New Low in MacArthur Park in 2021 and 2023. She attended the REEF Residency post-grad in 2019 and currently teachers sculpture at UCLA and Otis College of Art and Design. Wall has exhibited across Los Angeles at various locations including Praz-Delavallade, Francois Ghebaly, and Joan in addition to being featured in ArtCrush at the Aspen Art Museum in 2021. She is a Taurus and currently lives and works in Mar Vista, CA.
