Born in Miami, Florida, Zatara McIntyre is a visual artist of African American, Puerto Rican, and Jamaican roots. Her works on paper and installations materialize from an impulse to mythologize the ways in which black women's stories become their own north star; a testament to their rage and a means for subversion in a world that demands compliance. She is a 2019 Apexart International Fellow and was a 2018 participant at Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture, a resident fellow at Jamaica Center for Arts & Learning and Practice Art. Zatara recently exhibited at The Drawing Center and has received awards through the Ox-Bow School of Art & Artists & the Kossak Foundation.
