Alexis Hunter is a multidisciplinary artist that specializes in painting, sculpture, video, and works on paper. Born in Seattle, Washington, Alexis has been operating in Austin for over a decade. She’s currently pursuing a BFA in Studio Art at Texas State University, with a concentration in Painting and a minor in African American Studies. Alexis’s work is highly influenced by identity, whether it be her own or others. She finds it important to highlight the underrepresented perspectives of individuals more rarely seen in the contemporary art world. Through each narrative she builds, she learns more about herself and the other people and communities that make up this world. She is currently working on a series of paintings that explore the identity confusion and the unfortunate Othering aspect that often accompanies being biracial.
