Chyenne Rielly


BFA Alumni

Major: Painting

Graduation Year: 2022


​​​​​​Hailing from rural Vermont, Chyenne Rielly is accustomed to glamorizing the obscene things found in the deep dark woods. Chyenne’s artwork invites you to embrace both the imagination of your childhood and the adult forbidden, all while acknowledging the complexity and brutal nature of everyday life.

Their illustrative paintings often explore the themes of mental health and queer identity through whimsy, self-portraiture, and satire.

When not fantasizing about riding a magic cow through spacetime, you can probably find Chyenne eternally cleaning their airbrush or joyfully spilling glitter all over their Portland-based studio.
