Loreal Prystaj is a visual artist based in New York City. She attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, and received a BFA in photography in the Fall of 2013. Her work often times exposes the relationship between time and space, with a juxtaposition of the human form and it's environment. She expresses ideas through using photography as her base medium and expands ideas through video, installation, performance, and interactive pieces. Often nature is implemented in her work, and she uses symbolism in order to find the animate in the inanimate and to break the animate down to its essential components.
Prystaj saw her first solo show take place in New York's Lower East Side, exhibiting venue Gallery Sensei, introducing her renowned series, Being (February, 2015). Since then, she continues to exhibit in New York, along with showing bodies of work internationally, such as Japan, France, Italy, China, Finland, and throughout the States.
This Fall 2017, she will be attending the Royal College of Art in London to receive her MA in photography.
