As a black woman artist from Maryland, Murjoni has found that the best way to create and talk about moments of black bodies is through art, especially claywork. As a student from the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), Murjoni creates sculpted beings that are based around real people and real experiences. Her work addresses and eliminates stereotypes through clay portraits and video work. With this, she enjoys going against the European standards of “beauty” that are placed upon people of color. (light skin, a petite figure), and normalizing what is natural about black bodies - loving and accepting them as they come.
Through her artwork, connections and reflections with herself and others based on shared experiences. As a part of her craft, she plans to continue eliminating stereotypes and prejudices while uplifting the black community.
