Deon Reed

Deon Eli Reed Jr is a multidisciplinary artist based in Englewood, Chicago. His practice bridges and explores the gap between human logic and human nature in a playfully serious manner. By merging history and manipulating relics representative of societal normalcy, he hopes to anthologize the human experience beyond himself and call out invisibilized systems of oppression.

Deon is excited to to share space with other residents who embody a microcosm of Chicago’s larger cultural landscape. He is also looking forward to empowering other creative laborers to identify as artists and cultivate communities to be more critical of our city and country.
