FEATURED ALUMNI PANELISTS

Theresa Chromati, BFA Communications Design ’14
Artist

Chromati has garnered critical and institutional attention for paintings that burst with color and texture as they present sophisticated compositions that layer and interweave female figures. These bodies are at once imaginative, bordering on abstract, and celebratory as they convey a variety of emotional and spiritual states of being. The artist, who is of Guyanese-American descent, has described the work as evoking different feminine energies, as well as an outlet for self-representation. In the undulating and exquisitely balanced forms one experiences sensual, aesthetic, and psychological complexity and strength.

Kai Lin is an industrial designer who focuses on creating emotional and meaningful designs that connect people, objects, and their environments. He has been designing products for iconic brands across multiple industries, from medical devices, kitchen gadgets, to home appliances and beverage packaging.
