Aunia Kahn was born and raised in Detroit, MI. Kahn's works are a combination of numerous disciplines wrapped into one, which create a hybrid art form consisting of melding photography, painting, and collage. Each work makes use of her own likeness in movie-like stills of elegant decadence, varying taboo and often controversial subject matter to challenge the viewer, their understanding, and preconceived notions; yet she connects through honest feeling and emotions present in today's society. She designs, builds, and executes characters, non-existent places, dreams, illusions, fears, and fables.
