vision + the visionary
Phyllicia Carr is a self-taught multidisciplinary artist from Indianapolis, IN and is known for expressing herself through visual art, graphic design, and photography. Her journey led her to experience chapters in Alabama, North Carolina, and Georgia before returning home to Indy in 2018.
Her acrylic & oil mixed media portraits are inspired from vivid dreams, dialogue, research, and deep introspective revelation. Her work encompasses realism, surrealism, and abstract elements while highlighting her subjects with nature. Phyllicia uses her intuition as a guide to explore and communicate the importance of empowerment, love, beauty, vulnerability, and healing for the Black community.
She received her B.A. in Communication from North Carolina A&T State University. Her work has been featured in solo and group exhibitions in cities across the United States in Atlanta, Indianapolis, and Los Angeles. Her work was exhibited at the Indianapolis Central Library, WACO Theater Center's Wearable Art Gala (founded by Richard Lawson & Tina Knowles Lawson), Pardi Gras Ball, PardiWay, the AMP, and was a finalist for Finishline x Puma sponsored shoe design competition hosted by Pattern Magazine and Martk'd. Phyllicia is currently working on projects with White River Alliance, Indiana Black Expo, 7 House and Be Nimble Foundation.
