Join us at Venus Envy after hours for a vernissage showcasing our featured artist for August: Munea Wadud.

Artist bio: Munea Wadud is a local Ottawa artist whose work focuses on feminine energy and spirit. She identifies as a queer femme person of colour, and often dabbles with her identity in her artwork. She is a self-taught artist who works mainly with acrylics and watercolours. Munea has been painting and drawing for almost fifteen years. Recently, she participated in the 2018 Ottawa Art Battle, had her paintings displayed at Kinki Lounge, and was featured in the Triple Seven Gallery's June Vernissage. Her influences stem from semi-realism, pulling inspiration from retro-anime styles, and other online artists such as Leilani Joy or Jaquelin Deleon. Her unique way to infuse female energy, outer space, pastel colours, and mixed media is what makes her art stand out. When she is not drawing, Munea enjoys working in her local activist communities. She is experienced in working as a peer supporter, volunteering with different women's initiatives, and participating in local protests and rallies. She loves talking about intersectional feminism, going dancing, writing and reading poetry, and binging her favourite animes.
