The geometric themes in Georgie Nakima’s work preludes to the connection between science and art itself. Self-taught, Nakima began painting portrait work to pay homage to the African and Indigenous diaspora while accenting nature and biodiversity. After going to Northwest School of the Arts, she attended Winston-Salem State University with intention to explore natural science and biology. Today, she uses art to visualize the interconnectedness of communities and their environment on a micro and macro level.
Nakima has exhibited in galleries and beyond the scope of traditional museums throughout North Carolina, Atlanta, GA, California, and Costa Rica. Her recent projects have embraced cultural diversity within the field of public art as a sponsored artist for Ford, Xbox/2K, and Microsoft. She is currently presenting, Kindred, a multidisciplinary public art series in the Historic West End of Charlotte, NC in hopes to bridge the impact of art directly into developing communities.
