Chanell Stone is an artist living and working in Southern California.
Through self-portraiture, collage and poetry, Stone investigates the Black body’s intersectional states of being and connection to the natural world. Her practice negotiates potentialities for reconciliation and reprieve by upending historical and ancestral memories within the American landscape.
Stone earned her BFA from the California College of the Arts in 2019 and is currently an MFA Candidate at the University of California, San Diego (2024). She has exhibited in galleries across the United States and internationally. Her solo exhibition Natura Negra appeared at the Museum of the African Diaspora in San Francisco in 2019-20. More recently, Stone’s work has been displayed at the Museo Cabanas in Guadalajara and the McEvoy Foundation for the Arts in San Francisco. Stone’s photographs have been published in The New York Times, NPR, California Sunday, Pop Up Magazine and Vogue.
