Kwanzaa Edwards is a mixed media painter who currently lives and works in San Antonio, Texas. Her work depicts the female figure in otherworldly realms, presenting them alongside a psychological situation. Her beautiful characters are placed apologetically in their respective universes. These are settings for which the constraints of logic does not exist therefore anything is possible. The confidence and strength shown in Kwanzaa’s ladies draw the viewer into their world, placing the viewer in the same frame of mind.
Born in Port Arthur, Texas, art has always been a part of her life. Her illustrative style comes from her love for cartoons and manga. The mental journeys of her life as well as the people she grew up around, serve as her inspiration. Kwanzaa earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Lamar University. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and private collections throughout South East, Texas.
