Chintia Kirana is a multidisciplinary artist, educator, and art activist. Throughout the span of a decade, her work has been featured at a multitude of solo, group, and juried exhibitions across the United States and abroad in venues such as the Whitney Museum of American Art, Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, Wiregrass Museum of Art, Dhaka National Museum of Art, Sienna Art Academy, Zhou B Art Center, ISE Cultural Foundation, to name a few.
Born in Jakarta, Indonesia, Ms. Kirana was captivated by the art world at an early age. Due to a political uprising in 1999, she and her family left Indonesia and immigrated to the United States. This granted her the opportunity to obtain formal art training and ultimately turn her childhood passion into a lifelong vocation. Her childhood obsession with collecting and her fascination with the passage of time is well manifested in her sensible studio practice. She holds a Master of Fine Arts degree in Painting & Drawing from Southern Illinois University Carbondale.
Her studio practice includes community building through socially engaged projects and collaborations with other creatives.
