Unleashing abstractions on the Santa Fe community to create
intersections of curiosity and connection, Shakti Kroopkin harnesses the
energy of street art to fuel the momentum of her creative vision. Shakti’s
intuitive work frees itself from constraints of logic, gravity, and reality. By
allowing polarities to balance between the real and the imagined, Shakti
invites the viewer to explore emotion, memory, and the free association
of the creative process.
Kroopkin invents fantastical beings that act as guides, enabling the
viewer to further delve into the imaginary realm. Shakti’s work emerges
from the subconscious through raw strokes and primitive symbolism. In
this way, she intersects human experience with the unknown, waking a
connection to changing perspectives.
