Warith Taha

Warith Taha is a visual artist from Oakland, CA coming to NXTHVN from Sausalito, CA. Deeply inspired by his mother, Warith’s practice draws from a diverse field of research ranging from abstraction to 90’s Black Inches Magazines, family photos to found domestic objects, self-portraiture to autobiography. These points of interest become anchors in an ongoing autobiographical exploration which often touches on his relationship to American history, race, gender, sexuality and class. Warith received a BA in Sociology from Boston College in 2009 and an MFA in Painting from Tyler School of Art and Architecture in 2020.
