Isra is a South-Asian American Artist residing in Austin, Texas. She is interested in painting, photo-taking, and getting people to speak or move. Visuals that change minds. Feelings that lead to movement. The creation of self and the joy of collaboration.
my favorite people have always been those who help others.
those who share knowledge and ideas. folks who don't stop at themselves once they've figured things out. the teachers, the healers, the social-workers of the world.
that's why as i continue to pursue my un-learning and re-learning of the world, art, and creativity, i hope to share and empower others along the way.
my work revolves around creating images and messages that are meant to inspire people of color to get active, take up space, be see, be heard, and be themselves, especially while pursuing creative and collaborative outlets.
