MESSEJAH WASHINGTON




Messejah Washington is a multidisciplinary identity based artist working in Chicago, Illinois. Growing up on the south side of Chicago he was exposed to the arts at a young age and developed a passion for it through his father, visual artist Dale Washington. Working in mixed media he looks to use symbolism in his work to address issues such as capitalism, poverty, income inequality, and white supremacy. He looks to create a space and representation for people of color within his work as well as share personal moments from his life. He makes this work with the intent that the viewer will understand the journey of millions of blacks in America, and those the descendants of the great migration. He has shown work throughout the Chicago land area, most recently, having his first solo exhibition August of 2018 funded by the Illinois Arts Council Agency.
