Chire “VantaBlack” Regans believes that her role as an artist is to allow pertinent societal concerns to inform her practice and to amplify the voices of those she engages with through her work. Over the past decade, VantaBlack has become immersed in community advocacy and social narratives depicted without distortion in a variety of mediums. As a Saint Louis native, the birth of the Black Lives Matter movement triggered a sense of urgency in her practice and it has continued to expand, allowing for a wider range of accessibility and scale. Locally, VantaBlack continues to pair her artistic practice with community led activism with a variety of goals including prioritizing the art of story-telling informed by unfiltered interactions amongst the community.
