Madjeen Isaac

Log-in to Favorite

Madjeen Isaac (b. 1996, Brooklyn, NY) specializes in oil painting, as she focuses on creating images based on her Haitian American culture. Growing up in a neighborhood where it is predominantly Caribbean immigrants, Isaac allowed her process to give her a sense of purpose from the memories and cultures that have shaped her... "Flatbush is where I have lived most of my life. Flatbush is a place that emits culture and hustle. Overtime, I have developed a concern for immigrant youth and children of immigrants, becoming "Americanized" or assimilated out of fear, without reflecting back on the culture of their ancestors". Her works are based on celebrating one's existence and differences while showing patronage to the Haitian culture.

Madjeen currently attends the Fashion Institute of Technology, and is expected to receive her BFA in Fine Art, May 2018.
