Meet the Artist: Kelly Knaga

Kelly Knaga (she / her / hers)  is a working artist, illustrator, designer and muralist living and working in Chicago. Her works are investigations of natural landscapes through the layering of shape, image, color, and story. The use of color exploits historical and sometimes fictional references through anthropological studies, mapmaking, and storytelling.

Knaga is a co-founder of Art and Action Community Lab, a design lecturer, and a mama to two fabulous kiddos. Her work can be found in private collections, galleries, public art spaces, magazines, department stores, and on digital and physical products. You can shop the rest of her collection here.
