“Courage”

Rhode Island based designer Nikki Juen is a lecturer and critic in Rhode Island School of Design’s graphic design department. A graduate of RISD, Juen is also a founding member of Vermont College of Fine Arts’ MFA program in graphic design. This is her first show at OneWay.

In her studio work, Juen utilizes a variety of materials, including ink, crayon and pigment, to craft vibrant works on paper. The artist often explores the rhythm of multiples, a “deliberate contrast,” she says, to her more disciplined practice in professional graphic design.

Juen maintains her firm, matter design studio, alongside her husband, Rafael Attias. Clients include Keen Footwear, van Beuren Charitable Foundation, Aquidneck Farms and others.
