“I communicate with, and about, life through art.”
Kurda has been interested in art since her early childhood, now specialising in fine art, drawing and painting in multiple different mediums, including pencils, charcoals, pastels, and watercolours. Kurda’s older sister and her passion as a horticulturalist inspired her love for art and nature. For Kurda, art is the vein that has accompanied her artistic growth from childhood to present day: every piece of art communicates a different story and reflects periods in her life. A central interest of her art is the focus on the depiction of facial expressions, feelings and emotions through shapes and colours, and being able to illustrate certain moments in time.
Kurda’s art reflects her life experiences, one of which was growing up in Kurdistan, a country deeply affected by war and with no formal existence on the world map. These life experiences are communicated to outside spectators by portraying an inside perspective of the lived reality of war. Through her art, Kurda shows the human face of an increasingly unrested world, including economic, political and environmental crises which are intertwined in our shared history.
Kurda has been a part of BRAC since 2019 and sees BRAC as a great opportunity to be a part of an artistic network where skills can be transferred and exchanged with multiple people involved in the organisation.
