Kayla Mahaffey, born on Feb. 6, 1994, in Chicago, IL, is an up-and-coming artist specializing in an afro-surrealistic style with elements of portraitism and urban art.

The 23 year old attended the American Academy of Art in Chicago, IL, where she studied Illustration and found a new love for watercolor. While taking classes she absorbed the standard of form, technique, and individuality that led to her own visual imagery of controversial topics and a modern society. Her paintings show a new world of bright and colorful backdrops that tell a story of what is now and what could be.
