ABOUT

 

Nasrah Omar (she/her) is an artist working with photo based processes, AR/VR and collage. Her lurid, densely layered narratives explore the mythologization of objects, rituals and cultivation of digital identities. With an undercurrent of humor and subversion, her work investigates the chimeric language of commerce, internet aesthetics, South Asian visual culture and Americana to probe the spurious, sensory and sublime. 

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