Splitting their childhood between Oslo, Norway, and NYC Kita developed a love for public space at a very young age. This led them to pursue a career in landscape architecture to be able to allow their designs to contribute to universal and accessible scapes within the cities they love. Kita’s art strives to uplift, amplify, and protect Black spaces and folx, all while holding gentrifiers accountable for the communities they have interested themselves in. Kita collaborates with local community members to develop collage renderings of neighborhoods and neighbors, to show the spaces of generational love and growth. The stories told about these spaces give them all their value. These works of art depict Philadelphia through the eyes of its lifelong residents. Without these memories and experiences, Kita’s work would just merely be doodles of landscapes.
