Domia Edwards (b. 1998, Atlanta, Ga) is an artist whose personal work utilizes the mediums of photography, sculpture, video, installation and performance, to investigate familial relationships, history, cultural identity, class, and how systems affect the cultivation of the self. Domia and Caleb Griffin are partners based in Los Angeles working in fine art/editorial photography, and branding/creative strategy for recording artists. As a collective, they bring their Southern upbringing and cultural influences to the landscape of Los Angeles. They use theoretical art practices to reconcile artists’ lyrical content and heritage with futuristic aesthetics.
