Alexis McGrigg is a 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 explore the multiplicity of Blackness through figurative abstraction and conceptual narratives. She integrates poetry, sound, and performance in her practice as major contributors of influence throughout her research.

Her artwork is included in several private collections and has been featured in exhibitions across the U.S. in New York, NY, New Orleans, LA, Chicago, IL, Las Vegas, NV, and Oakland, CA – most recently in the group exhibitions, SAY IT LOUD, at Christie’s Auction House, Seeing 20/20 at the Lauren Rogers Museum of Art, Wealth Surrounds Me: God, Gold & Kinfolk at Richard Beavers Gallery, and LIGHT at the Czong Institute for Contemporary Art (CICA) in South Korea.

Alexis earned her Bachelor of Fine Art in Painting from Mississippi State University in 2012 and a Master of Fine Art with a concentration in Painting and Transmedia from Texas Tech University in 2017.
