2020 Postcard Series Artists
In 2020, we engaged three local artists to create a set of postcards as part of our winter "Thrive Together" campaign in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Postcards were printed for distribution at curbside pickup locations, and they can be colored and shared on social media using #SPLArtists.
Nina Dubinsky is a Seattle-born artist with a passion for all things art and internet. She draws on her dreams and identity as a third culture kid for inspiration when she creates. When she's not working or napping—she’s probably at home working on yet another unfinished art project or at your local boba shop.
Carlos Martinez is a visual artist based in Seattle, WA. A creative since birth, his perspective and inspiration is anchored in the imagery found in nature and his afro-indigenous roots that trace back to Oaxaca and Guerrero, Mexico. Drawing to rich color and tropical flora, Carlos works to create a surreal world where nature and humans live without boundary. Carlos works with mainly acrylic paint and ink. Carlos also adapted his design to be featured on our first SPL lockers: www.spl.org/Lockers
Washington born and raised interdisciplinary artist; Kimisha Turner enjoys working in varying mediums & processes to execute her conceptual vision. She creates murals, art camps/workshops, sculptures, and performance art, connecting with her community while reflecting the times. Typically, there is a familiar thread of layers and beauty combined with challenging subject matter in her work, with the hope that it is provocative yet easily digested by a varied audience. Bright colors and semi-precious materials are often used to grab attention and draw in the viewer. The Seattle Art Museum, Pratt Fine Arts and Seattle Theater Group are a few of the organizations to collaborate with Kimisha. While she isn’t making work, she is raising her amazing flipbook making son, Malcolm.
