Madjeen Isaac (b. 1996, Brooklyn, NY) specializes in oil painting, as she is currently focusing on creating images based on her Haitian-American identity. Growing up in a neighborhood where it is predominantly Caribbean immigrants, Isaac allowed her process to give her a sense of purpose from the memories and cultures that have shaped her..
"Flatbush is where I have lived most of my life. Flatbush is a place that emits culture and hustle. Overtime I developed a concern for immigrant youth and children of immigrants who assimilate out of fear, without reflecting back on the culture of their ancestors".
Her current works are based on celebrating one's existence and differences while showing patronage to the Haitian culture.
