Ronda Brown is a multi-disciplinary artist whose sculptures, paintings, and reliefs bridge a gap between the urban and the ancient. A Los Angeles native by birth, Ronda lived in New York City for almost 10 years. This bi-coastal influence, along with her global travels through Europe, India, Asia and the Caribbean have lent her a kaleidoscopic world view. Ronda's art launches an urban mystic sensibility through the canon of authentic hip hop, spoken word and soul music via multidimensional artworks.
Brown's work is celebrated for its sensual revelations of the sacred feminine and interconnected ancestral symbolism. Sustain-ably minded, Ronda's approach to her artistic practice, her home, and her family life, is constantly reverent of form, process and evolution.
Powerfully ritualistic by nature, as cultivated in her own spiritual practice, her work represents a deep connection to culture, tradition and mysticism that honors her Native-American and African-American Ancestry.
Beginning her education at historic Hampton University, she completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts and Master of Fine Arts at City University of New York. She is the recipient of several visual arts scholarships and awards including the the Jabonsky Award for 3-dimensional work, the Marry T. Poppers Award for 3-dimensional work, and the Connor Award and scholarship in undergraduate and graduate school, to name a few. Ronda Brown's artwork has appeared in numerous shows throughout New York, Los Angeles, and London. During her stay as a visiting artist in London, with acclaimed performing and visual arts company Mannafest, Ronda contributed to numerous cross platform exhibitions that earned awards through the Arts Council of England and the London Arts Board.
Ronda's works are included in the private collections of Mr. and Mrs. Forest Whitaker, recording artist Erykah Badhu, Doctors Karen and Timothy Scott, COO of Bankable Enterprises, Susan Moultrie, celebrity fashion stylist Yaniece Thomas and many more.
Currently, Ronda Brown is Art Director and teacher at Bret Harte Middle School and summer resident teacher at Fairfax High School in Los Angeles. Here she mentors and instructs school age students in all art mediums, encouraging young minds and spirits to find an empowered voice through creative self expression.
