Rashidah Salam

I was born and raised in Malaysia and am now residing in Philadelphia. I teach at Drexel University and Philadelphia University. I have participated in local and international art exhibits and have won a few major awards in art competitions.

My interest is in painting, sculpture and mixed media. I’ve always been intrigued working with collage, photomontage and layering techniques. I react to the events, to the people, good and bad things that had happened in my life and in the life that is surrounding me through an intense layers of images and motifs and vivid colors in my work. This is my way of recording and re-telling the events that has touched me.
