Christiana Becker

Maine based intermedial artist, Christiana Becker, is a first generation descendant of the Penobscot tribe. The research that shapes the creation of her art practice explores the history, culture, language and folklore of North American Indigenous identity, and then translates that discovery into art. Some places Becker’s work has been exhibited at are Lord Hall Gallery, Healdsburg Center for the Arts, Phoenix Art Museum, and Harlow Gallery. During the year of Becker’s undergraduate Studio Capstone show, Ghosts of Carnegie Hall, she was interviewed by multiple people about the cultural meanings and ideas that go into her artwork. These interviews were published by Bangor Daily News, written by Julia Bayly, the Maine Journal and Dawnland Voices Issue 3, written by Virginia McLaurin. Currently, Becker is working on her Master’s of Fine Arts degree in Intermedia at The University of Maine. Christiana received a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree in Studio Art with a concentration in printmaking from The University of Maine as well as a Bachelors of Arts degree in Art Education.
