"To create great art is to provoke great emotion. When we are moved, we turn towards and we are driven to take action."
- Kendall Alaimo
Kendall Alaimo believes in using art as a catalyst to create dialog around child sex trafficking. Her art is bright and playful in its aesthetics but dark in the truthful narrative it illuminates.
A graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Kendall also studied her craft in Japan and was selected to participate as an international artist in residence at the Centro Selva Center for Arts and Sciences in the Peruvian Amazon jungle.
Her iconic painting entitled ‘Survivor Voices Lead the Way’ has been exhibited in various international art events and is now housed in the United Nations Headquarters in New York. Kendall also had a solo online art exhibition with a United Nations agency in 2021.
Kendall’s artwork fosters needed dialog around the globe and was recently featured in the CNN International report: ‘Artist gives a voice to trafficking survivors.'
Additionally, her art and activism were recently featured on Amazon News article: 'Human rights activist's red seats help raise human trafficking awareness.'
She is currently dedicating her studio practice to the planning of a new major art initiative and creating a new body of work based around human trafficking. Kendall looks forward to releasing this new body of work to foster needed culture change and to aid in driving positive social impact for our world.
