Nour el Saleh (b. 1997 Beirut, Lebanon) grew up in Abu Dhabi and lives and works in London, United Kingdom. She received a Bachelor in Fine Arts from the UCL Slade School of Fine Art in 2019, and is currently completing a Postgraduate at the Royal Drawing School. El Saleh’s dream-like works explore notions of place, belonging and selective/relative memory. Working instinctively, without creating studies, figures with exaggerated features appear out of the bodies of larger figures replicating and morphing on the canvas—interacting with the denizens of the artist’s selective conscious. By utilizing theatrical references, masks and costumes, the characters in her stories probe conceptions of identity and place.
