Jamilla Okubo is a mixed-media artist.

Her work has consistent themes that explore the intricacy of belonging to an American, Kenyan, and Trinidadian identity. She aims to use her interdisciplinary concentration as a medium to address topics within her culture. Rotating between collage, painting, fashion design, and screen printing her work is heavily inspired by the art of storytelling.

Her most recent accomplishments include collaborating with Christian Dior, Gorman shop, creating live art installations for Culture Corp x Hudson Yards, and the Line Hotel DC.

Her work has been exhibited at The Torpedo Factory, Milk Gallery, Calabar Gallery, Weeksville Heritage Center, and the Dray Walk Gallery.
