“Crystal Marshall is a contemporary fine artist painter who lives and works in Atlanta, Georgia. Originally from Kingston Jamaica, her paintings pay homage to her life’s experiences rooted in cultural disparities in the modern-day African diaspora. Her distinctive personal style emanates isolation, self reflection and expresses the spirit and atmosphere of the black consciousness in efforts to reconcile its relationship with true identity and image.

Symbolic motifs such as wool, thorns, hair, figurative and allegorical representations are just some of the visual tools used to express displacement, hostility, victimization, exclusion, oppression and withdrawal. As the artist explains, “I am a storyteller and I welcome the viewer to be a part of this visual journey, to share in my experience.”

She earned a Bachelor of General Fine arts degree from Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, Maryland and also studied fine arts at Edna Manley College of Art in Kingston, Jamaica. She received a full scholarship for an exchange program at Pont Aven School of Contemporary art in France where she showcased her work in a group exhibit.

Crystal’s artwork has been shown in exhibitions such as “Intersectionality Theory” at the Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami, group exhibit. She has showcased a series of her artworks with the art box project in Zurich Switzerland & Barcelona. Most recently she has been accepted to the renown Chateau d‘ Oquevaux Art Residency in France where her works will be featured in their permanent collection.”
