About the Artist.

Hannah Witner is a multidisciplinary visual artist and innovative designer. She is a North Carolina-born, NYC-based creator who began her love of art around age 3, and has been learning ever since. She graduated at the top of her class with a BFA in Integrated Design from Parsons School for Design at the end of 2018. 

Her work spans from colorful, surrealist, and psychological oil paintings, whimsical drawings, and experimental & commercial design. Hannah is a multidisciplinary artist: at the heart of her work lies a passion for uncovering the hidden potential of materials, psychological processes, and the human condition, which she undertakes in a spirit of curiosity and experimentation. 

Hannah has been a studio resident at NG Art Creative Residency, Nes Artist Residency, Zaratan Arte Contemporânea, ConArtist Collective, and C-3 Lab. Hannah is represented by PIAPH Gallery in New York City and is a part of a number of art collectives in NYC. She has exhibited in and has work in public and private collections across the USA and Europe. 


She also works as a designer.
