See “Tatyana Fazlalizadeh: Oklahoma is Black” exhibition at Oklahoma Contemporary

Posted by: Josh Vaughn on Tuesday, April 30, 2019 at 12:00:00 am
Tatyana Fazlalizadeh

The story originally ran on VeloCityOKC.com.

Tatyana Fazlalizadeh is recognized internationally for her art that often sheds light on people that are oppressed, neglected, underprivileged and marginalized. National media sources such as the New York Times, NPR, Time Magazine, Buzzfeed and many others have featured stories about the artist and her work. In 2015, she was a recipient of Forbes 30 Under 30. Her art is collected by celebrities such as Spike Lee, who included many of her oil paintings in his remake of She’s Gotta Have It for Netflix. Currently, she holds the prestigious honor of being the inaugural Public Artist in Residence for the New York City Commission on Human Rights. She is a bright star rising on the horizon of the art world. Her path has led her far away from her OKC roots, but she returns triumphantly with her exhibition “Oklahoma is Black,” currently showing at Oklahoma Contemporary through May 19.

Despite her national accolades and international notoriety, locally it seems that people are only beginning to take notice of her art. Jennifer Scanlan, exhibitions and curatorial director for Oklahoma Contemporary, noted, “Currently there are several artists addressing issues of identity and oppression on a national level. What is particularly exciting about Tatyana's work is that it speaks specifically to Oklahoma City, the experiences of people here.”
