Atiya Jones  is an autodidactic creator of abstract organic accumulations that an apopheniac might call patterns. Her work serves as a depiction of biological functions reflected within society through line-based visual structures (I.e. osmosis as migration, communities as homeostasis, gentrification as disease). Her lines are informed as much by nature as they are by architecture. Man-made structures and the basic need for shelter lay at the core of the tactile tensions experienced throughout the cities she’s called home. Ultimately, she aims to create depictions in which the disparate narratives of persons past and present can coincide. The Flatbush (Brooklyn), NY native is currently navigating life in Pittsburgh, PA.
