Nefertiti Jenkins

Born in Colorado Springs, Colorado, Nefertiti Jenkins (b. 1994) is a New Jersey-based painter. She attended Mason Gross School of the Arts for her BFA and received her MFA from Otis College of Art and Design. Jenkins takes on reflections of past experiences and memories as a way to find appreciation for the rarer moments in life. Choosing high chroma colors, skewed figures and quasi-surreal environments, Nefertiti's portrayal of her recollection through formal paint handling leads to an ambiguous and dream-like narrative.
