About the Artist.

Hannah Witner is a visual artist and designer originally from Charlotte, NC, USA, and currently based in New York City. 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 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 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. She has exhibited in and has work in public and private collections across the USA and Europe. 

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