Swoon (b. 1977) is a mixed media artist who specializes in life-size wheatpaste prints and paper cut-outs of human figures. Although originally known for her street art, she studied at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn from which she received a BA in Fine Arts in 2002. She started to gain recognition for her street art around 1999 and began working on large-scale installations soon after. In 2005, she was the subject of an eponymous solo exhibition mounted by her now-mentor Jeffrey Deitch. Swoon has since been featured in major museums including a 2014 solo show, “Submerged Motherlands,” at the Brooklyn Museum.
