Artist Bio: bria royal

bria royal is a multidisciplinary artist who considers her animation, comics, paintings, and zines to be the result of a radical healing process that she hopes others will benefit from seeing unfold, and an attempt to construct intersectionally black and indigenous mythologies for ourselves and our future liberated descendants. Much of her work centralizes black and brown  imaginations of womxnhood, femininity, and gender fluidity through a lens of eco-feminism, afro-futurism, and contemporary mythology.

bria is a 2016 graduate of Northwestern University, where she studied Communications, Film, and Psychology, and she uses those fields to guide her approach toward creative modes of storytelling through technological innovation. She is deeply invested in the liberation of marginalized communities of color worldwide and organizes with the People’s Response Team and For The People Artists Collective in Chicago. bria also produces digital promotional content for social justice initiatives at Tumblr.

Alongside the arts, bria often facilitates workshops around themes of contemporary mythological storytelling, trauma-informed media journalism, anti-blackness in communities of color, transformative justice imagination, and issues related to mental health in activist spaces. Other interests include skateboarding, wildlife refuge, and astrophysics.

Featured: The black patent project

The #blackpatentproject seeks to make information about black inventors and their inventions more accessible and discoverable, as patents can be difficult to find due to their obscure naming in inconsistent attribution. This is especially true for black inventors who have historically not had access to filing patents or were not able to be credited for their contributions. See more here.
