Dayon Royster is an artist hailing from Richmond, VA. He received his BFA in Printmaking from East Carolina University and an MFA in Printmaking from the University of Iowa. While at ECU, he embarked on his first foray into printmaking with no idea of the path down which it would send him. Printmaking continues to captivate him because of the creative problem solving that is involved with the process; he returns day after day to try his hand at pulling a successful print. Dayon’s current work conjures universal themes of accessibility, curiosity, empowerment, self-doubt, identity, suppression, symbolism, and the “other.”

The residencies are multi-faceted experience that include teaching, community outreach, interaction with other artists, and studio care, and will culminate in an exhibition of new work.
