Kym Cooper is an inquisitive cubist / surrealist artist who is constantly on the pursuit of education, exploration, and joy. Speaking with Kym about her progression as an artist was almost surreal. In our conversation, we focused primarily on her art style, but we also discussed travel, African American family dynamics, Van Gough, and her appreciation for the African American Atelier. It was a inspiring conversation that encouraged artists to travel and expose themselves to different forms of art and cultures.
Her works bring you into a dream-like state of the african american consciousness and can be viewed at The Main, Center for Visual Artist, and the Kiosk.
