Born in Scarborough, Ontario, Curtia Wright is a multi-disciplinary fine artist and mural artist based in Toronto. She is interested in the way society's perceptions of bodies, specifically black bodies, have the ability to shape their narratives without consent. Her current works delve into the spiritual and mental wellness of African peoples and the link to mythology and disseminating what ‘fantasy’ is and who it belongs to. Her work questions our indoctrinated beliefs of what femininity and blackness are, the perseverance of the black body and issues surrounding mental illness in the Afro-Caribbean community.
