Jess X Snow

Brooklyn, NY, United States

Jess X. Snow is a queer asian-canadian public artist, filmmaker, poet and educator. She holds a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and is currently studying directing in the MFA program for film at the NYU Tisch School of The Arts. As a result of the migrations that marked her childhood, she developed a stutter which she overcame through her discovery of visual and written language. Her work explores survival, memory, joy, and our relationship to the Earth by amplifying the voices of women, queer people of color, and migrants who refuse to be defined by borders and time. Her public art and political graphics have appeared on PBS Newshour, The LA Times, the UN Human Rights Conference, NBC Asian America and outdoor walls across the country. She is currently working on Survivor Love Letter, an augmented reality mural project, VR experience and social movement calling survivors of sexual assault and their allies to publicly celebrate their lives. Through film, large-scale murals, street art interventions, poetry and youth art education, she is working toward a future where queer, migrant youth of color may see themselves heroic on the big screen and the city walls & then can face the possibility to grow up and create their own.
