Alahna Watson is an Art Director and Fine Artist living in Atlanta, GA. Born in the North and raised in the South, she has spent the early part of her adult life living and working between the two. The observations and influences she’s picked up along the way have been the subject of her artistic curiosities and flavor her approach to art directing.
She graduated with High Honors from Wesleyan University where she was awarded the Elizabeth Verveer Tishler Prize for her project g.r.i.t.s. (girl raised in the south), a multi-media survey of the racial and socio-economical nuances of growing up as a black woman in southern Georgia. Her recent work, both in drawing and film, has been shown in exhibitions and film festivals in Boston, Connecticut, New Orleans, Atlanta, and Jacksonville.
