Bio

Yetunde Sapp is a multimedia artist hailing from SE Washington, DC, and based in Brooklyn, NY. Her artistic practice ranges from acrylic paintings on canvas to the innovative realms of experimental knitwear. Rooted in the profound art of storytelling, her work is an ever-evolving exploration of materiality and narrative.

While initially forging her path as a fine artist, Yetunde's immersion in the Parson's fashion program ignited a profound passion for textile arts and material expression. This fusion of disciplines has become the hallmark of her practice, manifesting in a hands-on approach that brings cultural narratives to life through vibrant knits and textured masterpieces.

Her creative journey has opened doors to work with those initiatives such as Gucci Changemakers Program, Converse All Stars, Anacostia Smithsonian Museum, to name a few

As she continues to push the boundaries of creativity, Yetunde Sapp invites audiences on a journey of discovery, where the language of art transcends boundaries and speaks to the universal human experience.
