Star Feliz is a Dominican-American installation artist originally from New York, NY and currently based in Los Angeles, CA. In their multidisciplinary practice, earth connection becomes the key to transforming the ruling tenant of colonial doctrines: disconnect people from their land and you disconnect them from their power. Building upon their ancestral Afro-Taino lineage of multi-dimensional healing — Feliz employs sound, sculpture, film, and earthworks with techniques of concealment, language, and mapping to transverse the psychic legacies of everyday resistance and world-making. Under the moniker of Priestusssy they create experimental devotional music.

Feliz is also the plant spirit medicine healer and founder behind Botánica Cimarrón — a brand focused on bridging connections between people and the transformative healing power of nature. Feliz has performed and exhibited nationally and internationally including The Kitchen, New York, NY; The Oregon Contemporary, Portland, OR; The Horse Hospital, London, UK; among others. They have been awarded numerous fellowships, residencies, and grants including ACRE, Steuben, WI; Mohn LAND Grant, Los Angeles, CA; and the Printed Matter Emerging Artist Publication Grant, New York, NY. They are a graduate of the MFA program at UCLA’s department of Interdisciplinary Studio.
