Noormah Jamal is a Brooklyn-based multidisciplinary artist. She earned her MFA in Painting and Drawing from Pratt Institute in 2023 and holds a BFA in Mughal Miniature painting from The National College of Arts, Lahore, Pakistan. Her work centers around identity and the personal baggage that people carry. Heavy in symbolism, she approaches much of her practice through a child's lens. She has exhibited extensively, including Space in Time at Rietberg Museum, Zürich, Switzerland and Canvas Gallery, Karachi, Pakistan; Sites of Ruin at Twelve Gates, Philadelphia and Drun (The insider, the outsider) at Sanat Initiative, Karachi, Pakistan. She was an Artist in Residence at VASL Karachi in 2019 and was awarded the Imran Mir Art Prize the same year. Jamal represents the Arts as a member of the Youth Development Commission in KPK Pakistan.
