Nikita Raper, Ceramics and Mixed Media Artist
Ceramics, Textiles, Charcoal, and Multimedia
Nikita Raper is an Atlanta-based artist who uses sgraffito and carving techniques to draw in clay, playing with texture and contrast to bring an image to life in the round. With subject matter that covers the charmingly creepy to the boldly political, she uses natural imagery and the figure to convey experiences that are relatable and hopefully universal.
She attended UGA to achieve a bachelor's in both Psychology and Fine Arts. She's taught at several recreation centers in Cobb County from 2015 to present, and currently teaches ceramics at Colorwheel Studio in Decatur.
