Nabila Valera was born 1986 in Venezuela and grew up in Caracas. On long car trips with her mother through the country is when she first came in contact with “bordado guajiro". This art form originated in the indigenous tribes of what today is known as Venezuela & Colombia; and is evident as one of the main influences in Nabila's art. Nabila describes her art as conversations with herself, these talks are driven by an unapologetic view of the world and human beings. Her throw pillows containing statements such as "I’m fine" or "Love will save the day" say a lot in very few and simple words. The rest is in the eye of the beholder.
