Fine Arts

Chakila L. Hoskins
— Teague, July 17, 1980 —

is a fine arts painter & drawer from Grand Rapids, MI. It was at age seven when Hoskins discovered her artistic gift. Drawing almost any and everything in sight, her passion for art began to grow. She began honing her God-given talents at Grand Rapids Community College, where she received her AFA (2009). Hoskins continued her journey earning her BFA in Painting with a minor in drawing from Kendall College of Art & Design (2012), which is also where she recently received her MFA in Painting (2016).

Hoskins’ work is influenced by her childhood and life events with themes that focus on Family, Unity, Spirituality, and Eternal Life. She is currently living and working in Grand Rapids, Michigan where she has been learning about semiotics, the theory and study of signs and symbols, and applying it in her artwork. Semiotics uses communication, which requires a sender, a message, and an intended receiver. Hoskins has been creating pieces that focus on the inclusion of all people because she believes that art should be obtainable and enjoyed by everyone. She has established a special interest in the visually impaired community. Braille is a tactile media form of Semiotics. Her use of biblical scriptures and poems in braille is a means for the blind and visually impaired to connect with Hoskins’ art. It is also a way for her to use her gift as a blessing to the world.
