Artist bio

Nicole Barakat is an artist who works to unpick the borders of art and life. She makes her art with love and patience and experiments with contemporary drawing and textile practices. She also collaborates with local communities to create artworks and exchange experiences, knowledge and skills.

Nicole is fascinated by the idea of art-making as a form of meditation and transformation. She understands art and imagination to be important tools to dream new ideas and create change for the world we would like to live in.

Nicole sees the materials she works with as her language and the act of art-making as her poetry.
