Gia Hendrix (American, b. 1999) is a self taught painter based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Hendrix entered Stockton University as a painting major in 2018, and left after finishing her first year. She then attended community college and enrolled herself into psychology classes. After quickly learning that she longed for more freedom than what the structure of a university could offer, she decided to take a break from school as a whole. Since focusing on her artwork full time, she has had her work displayed in Philadelphia through Downtown 500’s Art Gallery, (2019), had her work featured through The Thesis Art Collection and Artsy.net (2020), signed with the newly founded NYC based Salt Gallery (2021) and represented through 2022, and has attended the Short Beach Artist In Residence Program led by Kathy Battista (2021).
