Nadya Isabella

Nadya Isabella (b. 1995) is an artist born and raised in Jakarta, Indonesia and is currently living on Tiohtià:ke/Mooniyang territories. A recent Emily Carr graduate, Isabella’s painting practice spans a wide range of themes, from animals to pop culture, the fetishization of commodities to the rituals of the everyday. These subjects are often injected with a sense of drama: poorly taken selfies become reminiscent of paparazzi photographs and even insects and amphibians become embroiled in fiery romances replete with picture perfect make-up and eyelashes. Recently, Isabella presented a solo exhibition A Swamp Sonata (2021) at dreams comma delta, as well as the group exhibitions homeplace, V.O Curations (London), curated by Kate Wong; Splinter awe !! (2021) & Crocodile Tears (2020) at Unit 17, Vancouver; Honest Cuts (2020) at New Gallery, Calgary; Split Ends, Cuckoo (2019) in Ladysmith BC, and Shadow Tongue (2019) at Duplex, Vancouver.
