Based in New Orleans, Taslim van Hattum is a multi-disciplinary artist and graphic documentarian. She creates art that adorns walls, studios, bodies and internet spaces with a multitude of inspirations and creative confrontations. She strives to imagine works that create conversations that need to be had and heard. Van Hattum’s work primarily focuses on how contemporary society intersects with sociopolitical and religious identities, representations and women–challenging and exposing the way in which space, personhood, beliefs, and popular culture are connected and imagined by the viewer. She holds a masters in public health from the Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine.
