Artist Statement

I am a Black concept artist inspired by the past, present and future of Black people. My sculptures celebrate pop culture, color, joy,resistance through preservation. I work with resin and plaster to create whimsical pieces that transform reality. My sculptures are often in the shape of food to play with your preconceived notions of food and their meaning. Through my work I challenge your ideas on the way pop culture interacts with your home life. 


Kendra Stepp-Davis is supported by The Culture Rooms. The Culture Rooms is an springboard and incubator for Black creatives that taps into the multiplicity and value of Black Culture today and our hopes for tomorrow. Our current iteration is a cooperative art space in West Philadelphia. We serve to act in a “for us by us” model. This model allows untapped creatives to showcase their work in the way creatives see fit. The Culture Rooms helps by providing the space, connecting with a like minded community and allowing innovative ideas to thrive. Our first experience was a 20 foot inflatable called the Full Set - which is a pair of hands with a full set of acrylic nails, October 2021.
