Nubian OmiSayade Sun
(Memphis, TN, )
A native of Memphis, Nubian OmiSayade Sun has been based in New Orleans since 2018. She is an artist and spiritual practitioner who strives for openness and divine understanding. In her “Goddess” drawing series, viewers are invited to intuitively locate prophetic messages, stories, connections, feelings, dreams, and beginnings. She describes the process of creating this work as starting “from the universe, and then flowing through my body and out of my fingertips.” Born to a family of artists, she cites Uncle David Green as her greatest inspiration, as they frequently communicate about their visions and messages from the universe, which transform themselves into artwork. Dr. Sun is presently on faculty at the Tulane University School of Social Work.
