Nada Baraka

Egyptian 1990- 

Born in 1990, Nada Baraka is a visual artist with a BA in Communication Media Art and Fine Arts from the American University in Cairo, Egypt and a master’s degree in Fine Arts from Central Saint Martins, London. Baraka makes paintings that maintain an endless, active state of flux; swaying between abstract and surreal with her evocative application and vivid colours. Baraka seeks to generate forms in new contexts to challenge and deconstruct the obvious and tease meaning out of absurdity. Fluctuations of emotions triggered by various experiences build up to a narrative that eludes interpretation. The core of her work is this process that seeks to narrate an experience through expressionist brushwork and surrealist methodology. A central aspect in those narratives is the concept of eruption, appearing as distorted forms, body parts, colours, or layers, all bathed in a fluidity punctuated with striking detail.
