Jess X Snow

Brooklyn, NY, United States

Jess X. Snow is a queer migrant asian-canadian artist, filmmaker, and pushcart-nominated poet based in Brooklyn, NY. A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, they are currently a MFA candidate at NYU Graduate Film. Through film, large-scale murals, poetry and art education, they are working to build a future where queer, trans and migrant people of color may see themselves heroic on the big screen and city walls & then can grow up with the agency to create their own. Their murals and political graphics have appeared on outdoor buildings across the country and on PBS Newshour, The LA Times, and in the permanent collection of the Ford Foundation and the Library of Congress. Their art and films have been used as organizing tools at protests such as the Women’s March on Washington, as a part of migrant rights organizing on both sides of the border, as well as on college campuses to support survivors and end rape culture. Their multi-disciplinary practice combines art and somatic healing practices to empower communities to discover inside their own bodies—a sanctuary of healing and collective liberation.
