Hello and welcome to my page, I am a Visual Artist

Crystal Noir is an emerging self-taught artist of Jamaican and Ukrainian descent from Vancouver, B.C. - the traditional, ancestral and unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations. Her work explores the intricate effects of ongoing colonial violence and the interplay between mental health disparities within BIPOC communities. Seeking to dispel stigmatization and redefine taboo cultural conversations, her work is often autobiographical and is likewise concerned with the experiences of being multiracial, and the unique encounters of exclusion, colorism, privilege and guilt that those of multiethnic lineage face.

Artist Statement

My work has led me to explore my identity by examining the imposed war waged on minority bodies and the important connections between larger themes of settler colonialism, gendered violence, and environmental exploitation. Inevitably as I unpack these concepts - issues surrounding the impact of these radical social issues and how they continue to attack the mental health and psyche of those within BIPOC communities, have quickly made their way to the forefront of matters I am compelled to address in my art practice.
