Tariqa Waters

Masterfully commanding space through her artistic practice, Tariqa Waters’s bold, technicolor depictions of pop and consumerist references “reclaim an authentically sincere aesthetic steeped in effortless regality and proudly celebrated traditions.” In her words, Waters is “creating work for little girls that look like me. For little Black girls that have never seen themselves in spaces like art galleries. Growing up, I felt powerless. I felt like I had no right to speak up or say anything. Now, I speak up.”
