Ebony J. Wright

Ebony J. Wright is a multidisciplinary artist based in St. Louis, MO. Traditionally trained in oil paints, her large canvases commanded visibility and communicated her story as a Black artist. Her bold paint strokes and vibrant use of color translate duly into fiber art, which has been her recent focus. Wright seeks to redefine the traditional medium of portraiture by incorporating wool into her work. This means of expression allows her to create soft, textured pieces that speak to her innermost thoughts, emotions, and experiences. Her work often features childlike characters, adding an element of whimsy and playfulness. Drawing inspiration from her surroundings and self, her work serves as a reflection of her being, her memories, and her aspirations. With a keen eye for detail and a passion for tactile materials, she aims to create pieces that transcend the boundaries of traditional art forms and speak to the universal human experience.
