Artist

Katya Khan is an artist exploring the field where art, landscape architecture and public involvement meet. Trained in traditional visual arts at St.Petersburg Academy of Art and Design, Russia and landscape architecture at Cal Poly Pomona, Katya works on projects ranging from a design of children’s play spaces to temporary public interventions. Her projects are driven by issues modern urban environment creates, such as lack of human interaction and deficit of sensory experiences in everyday lives. Inspired by free play and collaborative creative process, Katya Khan is passionate about designing unconventional urban public spaces and empowering people to create those spaces. In recent past, she designed a sensory garden for Pilgrim school in Los Angeles with elementary schoolchildren and engaged passers-by in a street happening On Another Scale as part of the “Art in Odd Places” event in New York City.
