The Artist

Nisa Omar is a Malaysian artist from Kuala Lumpur. She is also an academic specialized in Media and Visual Communication with qualifications in Bachelors, Masters, and Ph.D. degree in Creative Multimedia from Multimedia University, Cyberjaya.

“I usually find beauty within any ugly scene 
and turn the scene into a fantasy instead of horror.”

Her vision in art is usually about bridging a real-life experience and a fantasy world. Her work presents visual metaphors as a representation art through a very real observation, experience, journey, or any other primary findings of life. These visual metaphors were usually presented through a relatable concept where others can also see the value and the story behind the artwork. The objects or situation that she chose to present in her work will be the visual cues to showcase the implicit meaning of the art.

This artist work is an examination of the different aspect of life and how the common stories though expected to be predictable can actually surprise the viewers. Altering a real story into a fiction is almost how one can see the visual metaphors were crafted in the artwork. If one were to look a little longer in the artwork, you can see the tension that are almost appealing and imposing to our vision and perception of the piece. For her artwork, she believes that art is for everyone to view and enjoy.

“The central view of my artwork revolves 
around stories from a women’s point of view.”
