Artist's Statement

Grace DuVal is a Wearable Artist, Maker, and Photographer. Her wearable art has been featured in exhibits across the US and around the world, most recently at World of WearableArt in Wellington, NZ where she was awarded the inaugural WOW Designer Development Award in 2023. She has had the opportunity to collaborate on projects with Disney, Hot Topic, and Her Universe, among other brands, and her work has been featured in Rolling Stone, The Atlantic, Paper Magazine, Bustle, Jezebel, and beyond. She currently works independently as a designer, maker, builder, and materials expert.

DuVal's work focuses on building sculptural garments out of nontraditional fashion materials. She works with a wide array of trash, from bicycle inner tubes and discarded towels, to VHS tapes, suitcases, and beyond. She loves perusing alleyways and trash cans searching for her next material, or hunting for objects that people are discarding. For DuVal, the most exciting artistic challenge is transforming mundane materials into new and remarkable wearable art.

Her work is often large and sculptural, using shape and form to transform the body into something unrecognizable and otherworldly. She regularly collaborates with fellow artists and performers to create larger-than-life installations, performances, and photo shoots. Through the use of shape, material, and color, she creates a fully engrossing experience for the viewer, whether her garments are experienced live or through the media of photography and film.
