Kieran Myles-Andrés Tverbakk
is a multi/inter/trans/anti-disciplinary artist from Houston TX, currently living and working on unceded homelands of the Osage, Caddo, and Očhéthi Šakówiŋ peoples (northwest Arkansas). They create mixed media artwork exploring dichotomies within their experience as a first-generation Mexican-Norwegian-American who is also non-binary transgender. Their interests lie in how we as humans divide ourselves socially, politically, and physically.
Tverbakk received their BFA from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design in 2016 and has exhibited nationally in galleries including Clamp Light (San Antonio TX), Sure Space (Minneapolis MN), New Women Space (Brooklyn NY), NDSU's Memorial Union Gallery (Fargo ND), Waiting Room (St. Paul MN), Hair + Nails (Minneapolis), and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts Museum (Philadelphia PA).
Tverbakk is a 2020 Artist Initiative Grant recipient, awarded by the Minnesota State Arts Board. They are a co-founder of ACAB, A Community Arts Bandwagon.
