Christa Pratt is a painter and visual artist living and working in Brooklyn with Bachelor of Fine Arts Painting at Pratt Institute.
Born in the Bronx but raised in the South, her work examines notions of blackness and solitude. Individual works have touched on ideas of womanhood, strength, sensuality, and pride.
Through her artwork, she works to create a safe and empowering space for black women. She is currently an artist-in-residence at the Museum of Arts and Design Artist Studios Program for 2017, and her work has been featured in group exhibitions at Palisades906, Warehouse Gallery, and Kunsthalle Galapagos Gallery in Brooklyn, NY.
