Musa Hixson

“I believe there is beauty in truth.  My artistic honesty is achieved by producing art that fills the visual and spiritual voids in our human experiences.  I call my process identifying art, more so than making art. I am not attempting to turn materials into something; I help the soul of the material reveal itself.”

Hixson’s public art has been widely exhibited in New York City and Japan. His performance art has aired on VH1. In recognition of his Art and Community Activism, Oxford University invited Hixson to present a paper on Art and Education in 2007. He received his BFA from Hampton University (Hampton, VA) and MFA from Pratt University (Brooklyn, NY). He lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
