American multidisciplinary artist Hannah Witner holds a BFA from Parsons School for Design. She is currently based in Brooklyn, NY, and was born and raised in Charlotte, NC.


Her work spans from colorful, surrealist, and psychological oil paintings, airbrush paintings that draw from digital techniques, whimsical graphite drawings, tufted tapestries, and anything else that seems fun.


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. Her work combines touches of realism with meta-fiction and comedy and reflects our disorder, femininity, dissociation, detachment, individualism, transience, pop culture, and weird minutia of morphing characters, figures in motion, and layers of absurdity.


Hannah has participated in residencies in Hungary, Serbia, France, Portugal, Iceland, and the US.

She works as a graphic designer and art director in NYC.
