Artist Bio: Being a Phoenix native, Antoinette Cauley's work is very reflective of her city- the gritty and the beautiful. Her work is heavily influenced by rap music and hip hop culture with a focus on social issues and her own internal conflicts. She combines the grittiness of rap music with the beauty of vibrant color and a personal, emotionally driven message.
Cauley has spent the last few years working as a full time artist in her studio in Phoenix, Arizona. She attended Mesa Community College where she studied Fine Art with an emphasis in painting. During this time she held a two year apprenticeship with nationally renowned oil painter Chris Saper. Cauley currently works with youth ages 5-18, teaching art classes that focus on drawing, painting and color theory.
Cauley is represented by the monOrchid Gallery in Phoenix. Recently she was named the 2017 and 2018 AZ Foothills Magazine's Best Local Artist as well as one of Phoenix Magazine’s “Great 48: 48 Influential people in the state of Arizona”.
