Krystyna Printup (New York, 1983) is a Brooklyn based artist and educator whose work investigates her identity as an Indigenous woman and the issues surrounding ideal representations of the Native American community. A member of the New York Tuscarora Turtle Clan, Printup references her tribal history throughout her paintings, installations and design work referencing American Indian folk art, photography, and objects of everyday life which are then combined with her own family's history and traditions.


Recent installations include The Tender Art Space, Concord, MA; Chashama Gala, New York, NY; and The Puffin Foundation, Teaneck, NJ. Printup has exhibited in group exhibitions at galleries including Southampton Arts Center, Southampton, NY; NYU Kimmel Window Gallery, New York, NY, and Assembly Room, New York, NY. Printup is the 2018 awardee of the Stony Brook "40 under 40" Award, Spark the arts, Hilton Tapestry Collection grantee and Fund for Teachers double grantee.
