Artist, Art Historian, Culture Critic, Editor, Intuitive, Poet, Writer
Aaminah Shakur is an artist, poet, and intuitive, as well as an editor and culture critic. Their visual artwork is primarily mixed media that combines collage, painting, and traditional craft such as embroidery, beadwork, and other fiber arts. Their work explores themes of love, gender, motherhood, spirituality, sexuality, disability, trauma, history, borders, culture, privilege and oppression, abuse, freedom, and revolution – and how all of these are interconnected. Shakur will graduate with a B.S. in Art History and minor in Museum Studies in May 2019 from Kendall College of Art & Design in Grand Rapids, MI, and intends to pursue an M.A. in Visual & Critical Studies.
