McNichols is a West Indian- American multi-disciplinary artist based in London. She has recently completed an MA in Photography at The Royal College of Art.
McNichols’ photographic practice explores the aesthetics of Blackness focusing on its various aspects through identity, spirituality, and sexuality. Her practice is immensely experimental fusing varied mediums: print, painting, installation, sound, performance, video, textile, and jewelry/metal. Hailing from a West Indian American background, she is inspired to produce artwork that captures the urban cultural aesthetics of Blackness authentically and unapologetically. McNichols utilizes research of race and social politics on Black culture to bring awareness about discrimination and colourism.
