Amaryllis Moleski [b. 1985] lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.  She received a BFA. from the California College of Arts, San Francisco, CA in 2014 and an MFA in painting and printmaking from the Yale School of Art, New Haven, CT in 2019.  Recent exhibitions include Nobody Promised You Tomorrow at the Brooklyn Museum, NY (2019) and Fragmented Bodies, at albertz benda, New York (2020).  Later this year, DeJesus Moleski will be featured in exhibitions at the Cue Foundation, New York, NY and The Phoenix Art Museum, NV.

 

Moleski had a nomadic upbringing that continues to inform her artistic practice. Her works explore the intersection of identity and fantasy through her mystical interpretation of brown, femme forms. While she often creates her works using paints on paper, she also explores her mythos with installation and performance art. She has gained popularity with her graphic and cartoon-like figures, and has received press coverage from such notable publications as Teen Vogue, Huffpost, and Art of Choice.
