Rohan DaCosta is a multi-disciplinary artist from the city of Chicago, working primarily through photography, writing, and song. Often approaching his work with great emotional sensitivity, Rohan explores complex dilemmas, and frequencies found in lovers, in families, in ecosystems, and in places. In his candid street photography and in his poetry, Rohan keenly examines intimacy and relativity, often finding the personal angle to political problems. In verse, he expresses the profound joy and quandary of Black life in America. He is the founder of and curator for GRACEGOD The Collective, which celebrates the unique work of artists, craftsmen, and activists from all over the world. His work in graphic design and clothing has been featured as limited edition merchandise at The Koppel Project in London. His photography has been featured at The Flight Deck Gallery as a solo exhibition titled Ordinary People (2018). His photography has also been featured at Root Division Gallery as part of a group exhibition titled Let Me Be a Witness (2018). His book of photography, poetry, and song, The Edge of Fruitvale, was published by Nomadic Press on April 28, 2018.
