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.
After a transformative 2018 that included a stint in Morocco as an Artist In Residence for Dar Slimane, Valentine's work was then included in a number of group shows from galleries in San Diego California, to New York City, to Paris France.
2019 was just as busy, beginning in April with Valentine's work featured as half of the two person show Languages Of Environment (with Israeli sculptor Avi Sperber) at Paris' Mémoire de l'Avenir gallery. The second half of the year found Suki's work reaching new audiences in several group shows both domestically in New York City and internationally in Israel.
2020 promises to be an especially ambitious year, as Suki finalizes work for hir solo show premiering in Paris, at Mémoire de l'Avenir gallery. Titled Under Wraps: Hidden Histories / Open Secrets, the show focuses on parts of American history largely ignored and how those tendrils of the past echo in this present moment, as well as the intersection of such narratives with the personal secrets of anonymous individuals.
This summer, international group show One Thing To Remember, continues its tour with a stop at the Hovinkartano Arts And Cultural Centre in Hämeenlinna, Finland for all of July. As one of the contributing artists, Suki will be part of a symposium happening concurrently with the show.
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.
