Aïsha Lehmann’s work addresses what it means to be of mixed race today, when historically, interracial relationships were heavily patrolled and condemned. Using printmaking and drawing techniques, Lehmann has created large scale mixed media portraits on panel inspired by a series of interviews conducted with individuals of mixed-race. Each piece is full of visual symbols of the merging of two different yet complementary family lineages.
Aïsha Lehmann is currently in Brigham Young University’s Studio Art BFA program, with minors in Sociology and Africana Studies. She is an artist and researcher, grappling with the complexities of identity in race, ethnicity, gender, and spirituality.
