About The Artist:

Élan Cadiz an interdisciplinary, multi ethnic, multi racial, North American, native New Yorker, and Visual Artist that deconstructs and balances her intersectionality through her projects. Élan’s art and practice are grounded in the documentation of her personal narrative through the use of portraiture, domestic and historical imagery.

Cadiz’s artworks explore the ways societal and personal histories overlap and affect individual relationships, power dynamics and identity.

Élan Cadiz’s intention is to speak to the boundless potential in humanity despite impediments and ways our pasts can inform our future for the better. Her goal is to have viewers question their condition(s) in ways that bring about helpful inner inquiry and thoughtful discussion.

Élan’s formal training began in the High School of Art & Design. After graduation she was accepted to the Fashion Institute of Technology where she studied Advertisement and Design and Photography for two years. Cadiz graduated from City College of New York City with a BA in Studio Art and Education in 2008. She specialized in graphic design, printmaking, and education. She also took classes in art instruction and child psychology. Élan received my Masters in Fine Art from the School of Visual Arts May 2018.
