About the Artist

Hannah Grace Witner is an interdisciplinary designer & artist based in NYC.


She is originally from Charlotte, NC, and she earned a BFA in Integrated Design from Parsons School for Design in 2018.

Her work spans from colorful, surrealist, and psychological oil paintings, whimsical sculptures, 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 is represented by PIAPH Gallery in New York City. She has exhibited across NYC, as well as private collections and commissions. Hannah has been a studio resident at The Bowery Collective (formerly ConArtist Collective NYC) and C-3 Lab, and in 2020 will participate in merit residencies at the Vermont Studio Center, NES Artist Residency, Zaratan Arte Contemporânea, and D'Clinic Studios.


She currently works as a designer at a multidisciplinary design agency in downtown Manhattan.
