An Albanian-born artist, Juna Skenderi seeks to merge her passion for storytelling and her obsession with craft. Her ink drawings are meticulously and slowly created with black ballpoint pen. They are always done with black ink and begin with no intention. This has carried over into her new collection of abstract embroideries.
Her work has shown at BWAC, White Box Gallery, Fuse Gallery, TheaterLab, The Living Gallery, K&P Gallery, Collective Arts Incubator, and Grady Alexis Gallery.
Juna's wearable art line, Nous Wear, has been published in Bullett Magazine, Nakid Magazine and Murze Magazine.
