Valincy-Jean Patelli is a self-taught Black Nonbinary artist working and living in Brooklyn, New York. Patelli experiments with three dimensional textures to create mixed-media works and sculptures. This nonlinear process allows them to blend stories from their ancestors with historical, theoretical and Yoruba cultural references that stem from the African diaspora. Valincy is interested in examining the disenfranchisement and marginalization of Queer and Black American culture. Patelli’s work has been exhibited in numerous group shows and belongs to collections in North America and Europe. Residencies include Patio Taller Residency in Puerto Rico, 2014 and a self-directed residency in Berlin, Germany 2015-2017. The Sheen Center, NYC invited Patelli to participate in Little Rock 9: 1957, a group show in 2018. Currently, their work is part of the UNRPED group show in Los Angeles 2020-2022.
