Weekend Recall | Quiana Parks
Meet one of NYC’s hottest DJs, Quiana Parks. After being diagnosed with cancer at only 19, Parks found a medium to express herself through art. When she’s not DJing gigs for Nike or spinning at a Vogue party, she’s also a contemporary artist, putting her feelings onto canvas.
Parks’ work has recently been shown at Art Basel Miami Beach and will be featured in the upcoming season of Spike Lee and Netflix’s She’s Gotta Have It.
