Tieshka Smith [Certified Visual Artist – Philadelphia, PA]
Tieshka Smith is a new Side Arts Certified Visual Artist from Philadelphia, PA.
Tieshka Smith (she/her) is a Philadelphia-based photographer and content creator. She uses many tools to challenge and disrupt the status quo. Her community-based artistic practice interrogates racism and classism in place making and civic identity formation; how neighborhood-level memories and values are shaped; and the ways marginalization of people and ideas adversely affects American life and culture. Her photographs have been featured in print, galleries, museums, community spaces on the East Coast and in the Midwest, several noteworthy private and public collections, and online.
Smith is a native of Chicago, Illinois, and a proud alumna of Northwestern University and DeVry University’s Keller Graduate School of Management. Serious inquiries about photography commissions, arts/cultural digital content co-creation opportunities, speaking engagements, or purchasing her work are welcomed and encouraged.
