Nadine Faraj (Montreal, 1977) makes watercolor paintings with raunchiness, humor, tenderness and soul. She paints portraits and sexualized figures in varying degrees of abstraction often drawn from the worlds of pornography and erotica. Her fluid style allows her figures to emerge as deeply psychological and emotional beings, with a full sense of their humanity. Recently, her works have addressed issues of human rights, LGBTQI activism, feminisms and sex and body positivity. Born in Montreal, Canada, Faraj Lives and works between Montreal, Canada and New York City. Nadine Faraj received an MFA from the New York’s School of Visual Arts in 2015 and a BFA from Montreal's Concordia University in 2002. The artist has exhibited widely in shows internationally including New York, Montreal, Toronto, London, Athens and Dubai. Her work has been included in numerous press articles including features in Hyperallergic, Wallpaper Magazine, cover of A Women’s Thing Magazine, Huffington Post, Arte Fuse and Vulture.
