About

1) All in BLACK CROPPED.jpg

My name is Kuresse Bolds. I am an illustrator and graphic designer who works with digital mediums to explore concept, environmental, graphic, and sequential art. My character driven work aims to breathe life and personality into fictional beings while marrying identity with art.

By manifesting a broad array of colors and subject matter, It brings forth a sense of celebration, visibility, and uplifts artists that are usually overlooked. Being a black, queer artist who uses a vivid range of color, I aim to reclaim the space where artists of color can just "BE" and express themselves without the added stress of trying to pertain to one aesthetic.

I am currently Boston-based with my BFA in Illustration from the College of Art and Design at Lesley University.
