ABOUT

Details

J.T. Liss is an internationally represented photographic artist whose uniquely layered compositions and striking photography challenge commentary of our current social constructs and tell stories of the human experience. Combined with his poetry to further accentuate his truth, the viewer is able to experience multiple complexities of creativity to question their own realities. For J.T. believes that if a new thought enters the mind, even for the briefest of moments, then change has a chance.

 

His work has been featured in exhibits throughout the U.S. and internationally with several solo & small group exhibits in Barcelona, Spain & Saint Petersburg, Russia. J.T. has worked with the likes of GRAMMY winning artists including Lalah Hathaway, Keyon Harold, and Christian Scott. He was also a featured artist with The First City Project & Harlem Arts Festival. He has commissioned artwork at The Cecil, Harlem Public, The Honeywell, Bleu Magazine, While multiple pieces are on permanent display at his studio in East Harlem.
