Lives and works in Melbourne, Australia

Nusra Latif Qureshi is one of the artists who have revisited and referenced the traditional art of South Asian miniature painting in their art practice. Her practice ranges from usually small and highly detailed paintings to large scale digital prints that engage with the visual histories of South Asian region and Australian culture, questioning the conventional interpretations.

Nusra is represented by Sutton Gallery, Melbourne
