Artist Profile


Nicole Awai

b. Port-of-Spain, Trinidad / Lives Works NYC and Austin TX / Skowhegan

painting, mixed media, installation

From Trinidad, of Afro-Chinese ancestry, Nicole Awai has used her painting to address her hybrid cultural experiences and identity, explore the manifold culture of the Caribbean, and articulate forces of nature and transformation. Her earlier work, part figurative, part abstract, comprised her own image and materials including nail polish, glitter, graphite, and paint. Her recent and more abstract work focuses on “ooze,” in her words, “a site of creation and destruction, a passage between perspective and periphery, the elasticity of being.”
