Destiny Belgrave was born and raised in Brooklyn NY and nurtured, with a Caribbean-American upbringing. She is currently based in Queens, NY. Her main medium of choice is paper cutting, which she uses to portray themes of race, culture and spirituality.
My artwork incorporates my experiences as a black, dark skin, Bajan-American woman, who stumbles through the Christian faith; whilst exploring the interconnected themes of spirituality, religion, race, culture, femininity and sensuality. My whole artistic process is enacted through paper cuts that break the traditional frame while showing black and brown bodies in a high and powerful stature. This is done in order to subvert white patriarchal standards in exchange for a complex and interwoven narrative revolving around people of color.
