About

Madjeen Isaac (b. 1996, Brooklyn, NY) specializes in oil painting. Her current works are based on her Haitian-American identity and exploring the relationship between urban and tropical landscapes. Growing up in a neighborhood of predominantly Caribbean immigrants influenced Isaac’s process of commemorating memories and cultures that have shaped her. She studied at the Fashion Institute of Technology and obtained her BFA in Fine Arts and a minor in Art History.
