About Holly Ekwejunor-Etchie

Holly Ekwejunor-Etchie is a Chicago-based painter, focused on the human figure. Each finished figure has been altered from its original design, constantly reworked throughout the painting process. Brushstrokes, layering, color, and distortion are used to transform the figure until an identity uniquely its own is reached, often challenging contemporary notions of masculinity, femininity and race.

Holly studied painting at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and is currently an artist at Fulton Street Collective.
