Born in 1986 in Amman, Nour Taher obtained a BFA in Studio Arts from Corcordia University in Montreal, Canada. She also studied Interior Design at the American University in Dubai and drawing and oil painting at the DaVinci Escola d’Art in Barcelona, Spain. Taher has held two solo exhibitions in Montreal (2007 and 2008) and one in Amman, entitled "Manimal," in 2010. Through the use of bright colors, bold brushstrokes, and a wild imagination, the artist introduces a unique world where the abnormal is celebrated. Her paintings exemplify transformation, an amalgam of opposites where the unnatural is exalted and the feared becomes loved.
