The social and environmental conflicts of the 21st century are the main topics of Jessica Kind’s art. The artist sees herself as an observer and critic of the destruction of nature and the breakdown of traditional ways of life, mapping social and political injustices, cultural conflicts and the pressures that modern life demands of us. One form of her expression is the combination of poetry and digital art to raise awareness of the injustice she sees herself surrounded with and that society has seemingly normalised.
Her recent work focuses on the Maya Tz'utujil people in Santiago Atitlán - that she calls her home for now. With the bright colours of her pop art style, she aims to capture the beauty and diversity of the colours in the traditional clothing of the Maya cultures.
Besides being an artist, she is passionate about environmental education and climate change mitigation and adaptation projects.
