Danyelle Hamilton

Multimedia artist Danyelle Hamilton draws and paints figuratively, based in observation of public spaces while traveling or taking public transportation. They add poems to depictions of abstracted landscapes and impose narratives on architecture and the figures caught in these spaces. They also work on projects around their relationship to their family both living and dead and tend only to work in private. Danyelle is interested in and committed to the conflict of artmaking in the free market. This commitment is mediated by their making work at work and the idea that this process undermines (or substantiates) capitalism. Danyelle graduated from Vassar College in 2015 with a degree in geography and studio art, after co-founding the Alliance of Brooklyn Creatives, a cooperative of Brooklyn-based artists focusing on community building, artist exposure, and critical dialogue, and later moved to Texas.
