Tya Alisa Anthony explores the intersections of Ecology, Ritual, and Storytelling. While Anthony’s research driven practice is an investigation of Rituals interspersed into our daily lives, fact with a little fiction, her practice observes, reimagines and preserves inclusive spaces for people of color through sculpture, photography, collage and reliquary.
Anthony received a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree, (SUMMA CUM LAUDE) honored as Valedictorian, from Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design. Presently, Anthony lives and works in the city of Denver, producing performance, photography + installations.
