Suki Valentine is an artist, activist, writer and poet whose work has been described by critics as astonishing, luminous and fantastical. After receiving a BFA in Metalsmithing and Jewelry Design from Pratt Institute in New York City, ze received an MFA - Studio Art in 2017 from Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia, where ze was bestowed the MCAD Grad Fellowship Grant.
2018 was a busy year artistically for Suki. After a transformative spring in Morocco as an Artist In Residence for Dar Slimane, Valentine's work was then included in two group shows that summer: the first, in San Diego's Vivid Gallery for their Intervals show and later, for New York Studio School's X Marks The Spot, in lower Manhattan. In Autumn, Suki was an Artist In Residence in Paris, France at L'AiR Arts, with the winter being spent in back-to-back group shows, MANGER! EAT! and De L’Aube Au Crépuscule (From Dawn Til Dusk), both at the UNESCO-affiliated gallery, Mémoire de l'Avenir, also in Paris.
2019 has been just as busy, beginning with Valentine's work featured as half of recent two person show Languages Of Environment (with Israeli sculptor Avi Sperber) at Mémoire de l'Avenir, which debuted in April. Two other major projects -co-curating a group show in Tokyo and formulating pieces for an upcoming Paris solo show in spring of 2020- are both in development presently and will be announced in full detail when appropriate.
Suki Valentine's work has been covered by such publications as French journals Naja21 and Paris Lights Up, as well as Art Blog and Time Out New York; and has exhibited both nationally and internationally across three continents.
Born and Raised in New York City, Suki currently divides living and working across the river in Jersey City, and across the ocean in Paris.
