Nadaa is a Kuwaiti born sculptor based in Toronto. As a graduate of OCAD University from the Sculpture-Installation program, she has learned numerous technical skills in sculpting. This is evident through her use of a variety of materials including bronze, wood, fibre, and air-drying clays.
Her experimental, intuitive process defines the sculpture as it is being made. This allows for a weathered look often alluding to archaeological finds. The unrefined nature of the figures indicates stress and builds characters out of simple materials.
Many of Nadaa’s influences come from her Pakistani heritage and her travels, including Turkey and Egypt. Having lived in Italy through the OCADU Florence exchange also heavily influenced her artwork, and encouraged her interest in figurative sculpture.
