JAMILLA OKUBO
JAMILLA OKUBO  (b. 1993, North Carolina, USA) is a mixed-media artist. Washington, D.C. raised, Okubo earned her BFA in Integrated Design at Parsons School of Design. Her work has a consistent theme of exploring the intricacy of belonging to an American, Kenyan, and Trinidadian identity and aims to use her interdisciplinary concentration as a medium to address topics within her culture. Rotating between collage, painting, fashion design, and printmaking her work is heavily inspired by the art of storytelling through textiles and fashion.
