Dana Robinson (she/her, they/them) is a Brooklyn-based multidisciplinary artist who addresses youth, Black female identity, ownership and nostalgia through combining, reproducing and destroying vintage Black media.
Robinson wants to form a rolling tropical landscape inspired by their Jamaican grandfather’s backyard in Punta Gorda, Florida, where they spent time as a child. By creating this larger-than-life fantastical landscape, she hopes to create a calm, yet communal place where Black people, and especially Black queer people, can gather to eat, rest and play. Her murals are anticipated to appear in Brooklyn and the Bronx in September.
