Visual artist working mainly with canvas and paper in a range of sizes.
Aisha Nailah is a vibrant Connecticut based visual artist. She works in mixed media painting, collage and photography. She combines a love of color and texture often working fabrics, and paper into her pieces as well as using paint and ink. Her work concerns itself mainly with the feeling, color and spiritual vibrancy of the composition. Aisha is very inspired culturally being an African Diasporan woman of Costa Rican descent and by street art, especially the free forms and colors found in the styles and calligraphic movements. She has experiences exhibiting nationally and internationally as well as curating and developing creative events.
