The colourful, bold and quirky work of Nabeeha Mohamed (b. 1988) explores the intersections of identity in post-Apartheid South Africa – complex junctures of tension heightened by her humorous, irreverent treatment of otherwise serious and melancholic subject matter. She draws on her personal context as a woman of colour growing up in a privileged, predominantly white society, as well as the broader issues that inform this context: the country’s stark imbalances and inequalities, class privilege and capitalism, and the fetishization of women of colour. Portraits flecked with “almond eyes”, fantastical still lifes of wilting flower-faces, and designer shoes and sunglasses are expressed in thick, textured oil paint, bleeding watercolour or shiny enamel. Subjects and execution converge in myriad interactions – strange, absurd, amusing and tragic – speaking to the artist’s desire to “bring the full spectrum of my emotions into a [work] … that begins to speak to the entirety of what it means to be human.”

Mohamed has participated in group shows and art fairs in Venice, Antwerp, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, New York as well as cities across South Africa, and in 2017 she completed a residency in Ilhabela (Brazil). 2020 marked her debut solo show, “Sunshine on my skin is my favourite colour”.
