Nasrah Omar (she/her) is an artist, re-imagining through world-building in photographic, AR/VR and collaged realms. Her work probes narratives of visibility, connection and regeneration with the cultivation of affirming paracosms.

Nasrah's work interlaces layered experiences of the South Asian diaspora, material culture and syncretism, employing color as an agent of contamination and augmentation of the fantastical throughout her photographic vernacular. Mediated through carefully crafted, lurid tableaus, she explores pathways to decolonial futurities; traversing the realms of the sensory, simulated and sublime.

She holds a BFA in Photography from School of Visual Arts and lives and works in Lenapehoking (Queens, NY).
