Basil Kincaid 畢業於科羅拉多學院(Colorado College),創作媒材涵蓋絎縫、拼貼藝術、裝置藝術、攝影及表演藝術。曾獲選參與美國Arts Connect International 駐村計畫,甫於2018年與國際知名的當代藝術收藏機構之一摩根大通藝術典藏機構(JP Morgan Chase Art Collection)合作首屆「Art At Work Live」計畫,由銀行職員提供家中服裝布料,Kincaid 再加以絎縫、拼貼創作為最足以代表全公司職員的特別「肖像畫」,爾後Kincaid 三件作品獲該藝術機構收藏。

「絎縫工藝」(quilting)對Kincaid 而言是具家族傳承意義的,早在100多年前他來自西非的家族成員便開始著手絎縫,這份歷史意義促發他以當代藝術創作形式與傳統絎縫技法結合,如藝術家所言,有如賦予「祖先的力量」。Kincaid 從身為移民後代的個人經驗出發,轉而在作品中注入更多非裔移民在歷史裡所經歷的創傷與流離失所,及對於當代種族議題的關注,也將其視為一種自我療癒或自我解放的探索過程。Kincaid 被視為是為「再造」藝術家,他從所收集的材料中汲取藝術,透過了解不同文化的當地傳統、地理與多元文化遺產,與當地的藝術家或工匠合作,有意識地將藝術與身份認同、社區意識結合。透過絎縫,也建構起Kincaid 作為一位非裔美國人的個人自我認同與文化價值。
