Kahlil Irving is a St. Louis-based multimedia artist with a focus on sculpture and installation. His work challenges accepted ideas about colorism, community, and the urban environment. Objects and forms taken directly from the urban landscape are translated into the fine arts materials of porcelain and ceramics and are combined, warped, and recontextualized in his works. A graduate of the MFA program at Washington University, Irving has exhibited throughout the Midwest, and recently had a solo exhibition at Callicoon Fine Arts in New York City.
