Project Description

What is King P. Studio &
Who is Precious?

S E L F  T A U G H T + P R O F E S S I O N A L L Y  T R A I N E D  D E S I G N E R

I am a woman of color [literally] who is not only an African American woman, but also a woman who takes a deep dive on color theory through different intersections such as graphic design, painting, photography, pattern making, asemic writing and street art. Working with such a variety of media allows me to execute color in a way I see fit.

The overarching intent of my work is to tell a story about a woman constantly fighting depression and becoming optimistic, finding her voice, learning where she stands in–

"do things people love" (asemic lettering)

the world, understanding her worth, and discovering what she means to be a voice for those who cannot speak and talk for themselves. The work conveys a story to the viewers who, even if they cannot relate, can have similar experiences to the emotion that the color provides.
 

"love is..." (asemic lettering)


I am creating work to find out more about the making of a love language wherein young artists of color can understand the translation and transition of what it means to be art and making art that constantly represents them in places they don’t see themselves.
 

King P. Studio specializes in branding and public art that is tailored to get more young artist of color into the arts through media and print!

I will be partnering with a non-profit building a curriculum for young artists that engages them through pattern making, asemic lettering, and of course, graphic design. I want to expand in a way that we, as community can plant seeds when a child is young to know they matter, art matters, and they can win! I will be making prints as we construct the love languages and creating a final book!

Both the book and prints will be available through http://www.kingpstudio.co and a portion of each print sold will go towards a non-profit surviving underrepresented students in urban areas ranging from mental health to mothers in women battered shelters.

 

I am a seeking funding through iFundWomen:

to be able to pay for printing, materials + programming, studio space, and travel between cities and states to share the experience and share my story to inspire more artists!
 

HELP ME TO PROVIDE THIS TO COMMUNITIES EVERYWHERE
& MUCH GRATITUDE TO YOU ALL FOR SUPPORT, LOVE, AND COURAGE!
