Profile Information

     Angie Redmond Artist is a figurative and portrait artist from Chicago, IL. She received her Masters of the Science degree in Digital Art from Knowledge Systems Institute in Skokie, IL and a Bachelor of the Arts degree in Studio Art (emphasizing in oil painting) from Albion College in Albion MI.  Her pieces contain both oil paintings and drawings.

     She uses her personal experiences to focus her artwork on various social issues within a culture.  For example, the subject of natural African American hair is a reoccurring theme within her art.   Having natural hair herself, she has faced a lot of ridicule and negative views towards her coils.  Drawing from those experiences she creates paintings and drawings to celebrate natural hair for its unique distinctiveness and beauty.  She also explore topics that affect her community; such as the violence throughout Chicago and our ability to make the situation better.  

     It's the thick texture and vibrant colors of the oil paint and the love for the complexity of humanity that keeps the brush in her hand! 

     She uses her personal narrative to honor her race and celebrate all of the human spirit.

     Angie's artwork has been shown nationally in various museums, galleries, and universities ranging from Chicago, New York City, and Miami.  She was a finalist in the first Rush Philanthropies Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series.  She also exhibited artwork in the 2015 Museum of Science and Industry Black Creativity and was voted winner of the Ultimate Painting Chicago Live Painting Competition.
