Art:21 - Laylah Ali

art:21

2005

Laylah Ali creates gouache-on-paper paintings that take her many months to complete. Ali meticulously plots out in advance every aspect of her work, from subject matter to choice of color, achieving a high level of emotional tension in her paintings as a result of juxtaposing brightly colored scenes with dark, often violent subject matter.

Laylah Ali is featured in the Season 3 episode “Power” of the series “Art:21 — Art in the Twenty-First Century.”
