Liala Amin is a Milwaukee artist who received her Bachelors of Fine Arts in Fibers from the Peck School of the Arts at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 2014. Her work includes mixed media paintings, drawings, and textiles. She works between mediums, oftentimes combining all in one piece, to explore the tactile nature of how materials can narrate her story. Amin’s work is a personal exploration of self-acceptance through themes of spirituality and identity. She considers her work a visual journal and an outlet to manifest introspection and responses to the process of personal growth.
Her work has been exhibited within local and Midwest group exhibitions in Var Gallery, Frank Juarez Gallery, SWAN Day Milwaukee, Woman Made Gallery and Old Courthouse Arts Center.
