Filwa Nazer (b.Swansea, United Kingdom) is a Saudi multi-media artist. She lives and works in Jeddah. Nazer began her creative journey as a fashion designer and graduated from Milan’s Marangoni school of Fashion and design. Her practice ranges from digital print, collage, textile to appropriation of photography and centres around questioning the emotional and psychological identity in relation to spatial and social contexts.
In her recent practice the artist employed textiles and sewing techniques as a medium to explore relationships between our bodies & the spaces we occupy, thus unveiling an intimate experimental process that reflects the tensions inherent in both.
