About

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"
