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.

Interlacing layered threads of the South Asian diaspora, ecology, ritual, folklore, pan-psychism, material culture and technology, she constructs fantastical realms of healing through entanglements. Mediated through carefully crafted, lurid tableaus, Nasrah's work explores pathways to de-colonial 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).
