Oakland based visual artist, MK Veniegas Isip, has been refining their skills in photography and cinematography since 2016. An artist with many mediums, MK has been creating since their hands first grasped the sand outside their provincial, rural home in Pampanga, Philippines. MK, working from within an intersectional lens that aims to catalyze social change through creative media, has exhibited their work at the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History as well as several benefit shows. In 2019 MK served as an elected Arts Commissioner in the city of Santa Cruz where they obtained their undergraduate degree. They are presently pursuing a Master’s in Fine Arts at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco, CA. MK’s current focus is on an autobiomythography that interrogates the western lens on society and history, centering their family diaspora.
