Her name is Ananda Nahu and her work is an explosion of color. Ananda Nahu is a Brazilian artist born in Juazeiro, a quiet city in the interior of Bahia. She grew up in Petrolina, an arid city in Pernanbuco state, separated from Juazeiro by the Sao Francisco river. This land is plagued by poverty; legacy of an unjust and racist system. She often portrays those who have been marginalized by society in her work.

Walk the streets of the city and you’ll see her work on the walls of decaying buildings, rusty train cars or underpasses. She brings beauty to forgotten places and joy to those who gaze upon her work.
