Artist Spotlight: Meet Karissa John



Karissa John, Senior Year at Southern Adventist University in Collegedale, NY ‘2020

Karissa John deserves some shine and we’re here to tell you why!

Wisdom and Royalty would like to share the Artist Spotlight with Karissa John. I have known Karissa for about a year now and automatically we connected to where we’ve grown as a great support system mentally. As creatives, no conversation is ever a bore and overtime, Malik and I have truly appreciated the works created by Karissa John. I mean, her paintings are breathtaking! Karissa, currently residing in New York, is in her senior year at Southern Adventist University in Collegedale, TN. I remember, one of the first conversations we had- she told me why it was her passion to create the paintings she’s done. Frustrated by the lack of ‘African/Melanated/Black’ representation in the art displayed at her university, Karissa set out to paint our people in an impressively positive manner. Which brings us to her feature today, a year later and Karissa’s Solo Art Exhibition is here! Karissa brings us “BLACK ELEVATION”! A pure collection of paintings expressing her inspirations through black paintings. Please follow her social media accounts to experience the exhibition to access that footage for yourself. This is a cheers to your success, Karissa, plus many more!

You can view more of Karissa John’s original works which are also available for sale on her self-titled website, She is definitely a rising notable painter for what she’s already managed to accomplish. Let us all root for success!
