Waleska Nomura is a Brazilian artist now residing in the UK. Entirely self-taught, Nomura dipped her toe into the artistic world painting graffiti letters onto the streets of her hometown of Sao Paulo. Later, she began a journey of experimentation into different materials and mediums, including painting, collage, found objects, character work and modelling clay.
Whatever medium she’s working in, Nomura’s mission is clear - to spread messages of love. Her first London show, Moving On, came in 2009 and focused on themes of family and friendship. It was during this show that the artist showcased her A Heart in Love series, which won her critical acclaim and international interest in her work from collectors and galleries alike.
