Kate Hanrahan

Artist + Kate Hanrahan

Kate R. Hanrahan (b. 1985, Pennsylvania) is an artist and educator based in New Orleans. She graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design with a BFA in Painting in 2007. Hanrahan has shown her work nationally in cities such as Atlanta, Savannah, Boston, New York, and New Orleans, as well as internationally in Canada and France. In 2015, she took part in Brandan Odum’s Exhibit BE which became known as the largest single-site street art exhibit in the American South. Her public art works are featured in the book, New Orleans: Murals, Street Art & Graffiti, Volume One, compiled by Kady Perry. 

Hanrahan has worked across the mediums of painting, drawing, paper cut-outs, photography and installation over the years. Steeped in symbolism, her work maps personal explorations of gender, identity, death, rebirth and the body's physicality in relation to what surrounds it. Figures, plants and animals help craft a pathway to a shared experience of emotion, humanity, and our ties to the natural and spiritual world. Delving into the unconscious, she plumbs the depths of the inner landscape, invoking both memory and imagination as a means of curiosity, understanding and connection.
