Shefon Taylor, a multi exploratory artist, examines the complex and prosaic moments of being across art forms. Her journey celebrates creativity as a continuum, a force to express our many and full selves and the use of imagination as an ingress to self-discovery, healing and liberation.
Through her digital design work, she incorporates disjointed elements of ordinary Black history, nature and space into surreal stories. The often-opaque themes weave texture, shape and color to transcribe an understanding of her present life, the lives of women before her and the possibilities of an imagined future. Shefon cites artists such as Lorna Simpson, Wanuri Kahiu, Carrie Mae Weems, Ntozake Shange, Warsan Shire and Zora Neale Hurston as inspiration to her work.
