JESS X SNOW
Pincause: Rise for Refugees
JESS X SNOW (b. 1992) is a queer Asian-American artist, filmmaker and poet. After the Cultural Revolution, her parents immigrated from Nanchang, China to Canada, which she shortly left at the age of 7 to migrate to the US with her mother. After the splitting of her parents, she developed a stutter which she overcame through her discovery of art, poetry and film.
Her artwork has appeared in the The LA Times, NBC Asian America, The Huffington Post, The UN Human Rights Council and on indoor and outdoor walls in Manhattan and throughout the US. She is a member of the Justseeds Artist Co-operative and a teaching artist who has worked with previously incarcerated families, migrant and indigenous youth communities to speak their truth and transcend trauma with art. She holds a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and is a recipient of a grant from The Canada Council For The Arts. She recently wrote and provided creative direction for Migration Is Natural, a short animation with Adobe Project 1324, about her experience of creating home in her art after the hardships of her family's migration.
Through film, mural-making, poetry and youth art education, she is working toward a future where migrant and indigenous youth of color see themselves whole and heroic, on the big screen and the city walls & then grow up to create their own.
