Elle Zusi. She/They

Portland-based Artist, Elle Zusi, is challenging the perception of identity one piece at a time, by calling attention to the careful balance identity plays in creating the whole person. Heavily influenced by the American Traditional tattoo design, Zusi's works are multifaceted -  She examines how the current social culture plays into identity. Uniting the identities of Race, Religion, Disability, Sexuality, Gender and all the socially constructed identities that are used to divide. Zusi has found that by uniting the parts, the whole becomes stronger.
