Alexis McGrigg

    Violet Deep

Alexis McGrigg is an emerging contemporary artist who explores themes of blackness, space, spirituality, identity, and collective consciousness. Her artwork utilizes the mediums of painting, drawing, transmedia, and installation to create fictional and philosophical narratives of black existence that stem from historical and lived experiences. She integrates poetry, sound, and performance in her practice as major contributors of influence throughout her research.

Alexis earned her Bachelor of Fine Art in Painting from Mississippi State University in 2012. In 2017, she received her Master of Fine Art from Texas Tech University with a concentration in Painting and a secondary emphasis in Transmedia. She has exhibited in several exhibitions across the U.S. in New York, New Orleans, Chicago, Las Vegas, and Oakland.
