Visual Art – Chicago, IL

A budding young artist from the south side of Chicago, Naté Allen often uses painting, photography and creative writing as an expressive outlet and therapeutic tool to organize her thoughts. As an active advocate for mental wellness, Naté themes her works to mirror the inner workings of the human mind, most specifically her own personal experiences with depression and anxiety.

When recounting the reason that she’s so connected to art, she explains that “it bleeds truth into a world of lies and pries open doors otherwise cemented shut by normalcy.
