Bios

Grace Kisa

Grace Kisa was born in Nairobi, Kenya. Her father’s profession as an economist afforded my family the opportunity to travel and live in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, McLean, Virginia, Toronto Canada then Gaborone, Botswana before she came to Atlanta, Georgia to pursue a degree in Art form the Art Institute In Atlanta. She now lives in Lawrenceville, Georgia a suburb outside of Atlanta where She makes a living as an artist. Lawrenceville, Georgia is located in Gwinnett County which has recently been described as the most culturally diverse county in the South. She grew up as a “third culture kid”. Kay Branaman Eakin describes a third culture kid as “someone who, as a child, has spent a significant period of time in one or more cultures other than their own, thus integrating elements of those cultures, and their own birth culture, into a third culture”. “I have developed a flexibility and adaptability and can draw inspiration from a broad cultural knowledge base. I am able at once to feel at home everywhere and nowhere. Through these experiences I have an expanded world view which allows me to perceive it differently. I am open to cross-cultural exchanges, and collaboration and this is reflected in my art”.

Tiger Strikes Asteroid Greenville

Tiger Strikes Asteroid Greenville (TSA GVL) was founded in 2019 and is the newest part of the Tiger Strikes Asteroid (TSA) network of artist-run spaces and joins locations in Philadelphia, New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago. Our goal is to collectively bring people together, expand connections and create community through artist-initiated exhibitions, projects, and curatorial opportunities. We seek to build an ethos of cooperative achievement in the visual arts, creating the physical and emotional space for artists to show their work and exchange ideas on their own terms. Our artist-run model expands the artist’s role beyond that of studio practitioner to include the roles of curator, critic, and community developer and provides an alternate model to the conventions of the current commercial art market. TSA GVL will specifically focus on connecting the art communities in Greenville and the greater Southeast to the global art world. TSA was founded in 2009 in Philadelphia, is a 501c3 non-profit organization, and is a 2021 recipient of a grant from the Warhol Foundation.
