Some feelings and thoughts cannot be communicated through conversation. For Nadia Nazar, art is a form of poetry allowing communities to connect with one another and with ourselves. Deeper senses of family, generational trauma, the process of decolonization, and the burden of certain traditions are spoken through her artwork. Through interdisciplinary communications, she navigates the gratitude and frustration she feels for her background and identity as a south asian woman living across the world from her homeland.

Nadia Nazar is a muslim south asian artist and climate justice organizer. She was born and raised in Baltimore County Maryland, but calls Kerala, India her homeland. Tales of loneliness, nostalgia, anxiety, and the unfortunate universal process of forgetting childhood ring throughout the stories she tells.
