With an Egyptian father and a Caucasian American mother, Amirra Malak considers herself an “authentic hybrid” stretched between two contrasting cultures. For most of her childhood, she lived in Kuwait and Egypt while she has lived in the Pacific Northwest of the United States for most of adulthood. Her work is infused with the tensions and ambiguity experienced within this “third space” by integrating solid forms from nature with dissolving Middle Eastern pattern and text.
She shares her passion for art making and authentic expression with her two children, her students in public schools where she has been an art teacher for fifteen years and online at Art with Amirra.
