Le’Andra LeSeur (b. 1989 in Bronx, NY) is a multidisciplinary artist working and living in Jersey City, NJ. LeSeur received her BFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2014. Her work explores black identity informed by the effects that regulated systems of oppression have on black women, specifically. LeSeur has participated in exhibitions throughout the Southeast including On Being Black at Arnika Dawkins Gallery in 2015. LeSeur was the recipient of the 2017 Contemporary Black Art award at Artprize 9 in Grand Rapids, MI for her piece, Searching, and her work is featured in permanent and private collections throughout the southeast. Outside of creating her own work, LeSeur has made notable contributions to the arts through her active participation in curating exhibitions and workshops for women of color that speak to the power in existing through expression in a world that shuns black women for these exact actions.
