    Nada Odeh

    Nada Odeh is a Syrian artist, activist, humanitarian, and modern-day poet. She was born and raised in Damascus and has lived in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Ms. Odeh came to the USA in 2013 due to conflict and revolution in her country. She earned her M.A. in Museum Studies from Syracuse University, and lives and works in Syracuse, New York. She received her Bachelor’s in Fine Arts from Damascus University, and has attended many workshops in the field of visual, communication, and therapeutic arts. Odeh has established a project commonly known as ‘Nada’s Picassos’, which started in Damascus but was then later moved to Dubai, Michigan, and currently, New York State. The primary medium she works in is acrylics on canvass. Arabic miniatures, Middle Eastern colors, and small details of her heritage influence her artwork. The key theme in which her artwork is mainly focused is on Syrian refugees in camps and Syrian people. Recently, she is focusing more artistic attention on displaced Syrian women in exile. She has exhibited her art in Damascus, Dubai, New York City, Detroit, Toledo, Tiffin, Washington D.C. Syracuse, Albany, and Auburn, New York. Nada Odeh is a freelance curator who had the opportunity to curate different projects centering on the topic of immigration and folklore arts. She worked with the New York Folklore on different projects highlighting immigrants’ and refugees’ folklore arts. Nada’s art and activism has helped many organizations and artists to embrace the art experience to the ultimate levels. Nada’s art exhibition can be viewed in The Kuta Gallery.
