Aisha Nailah is a Bridgeport, CT based teacher and visual artist working in mixed media and photography. She combines a love of color, dimension, and texture into her pieces, concerning herself with the feeling, vibrancy, and balance of the composition–often times including images that seem to “say something”. She is very inspired heavily by her culture and terms her style as “urban abstract”. She’s a Read’s Artspace resident artist, has exhibited in various exhibits in the U.S. and Ghana, which include Black Joy at the National Black Theater, The Peace Project, Beautiful Spectacle, City Lights Gallery, City of Norwalk Art in the Windows, etc., and is co-curator at Blends Gallery, the Beautiful Crime: Graffiti and Pop Art exhibits in 2011 & 2014, and Obsidian Colored Glasses: An Introspective Look at Black Lives Through Art in 2017. Her art is “color therapy, culture, emotion, fantasy and dreams and nightmares”.
