Born:1960, Kabul, Afghanistan
Has practiced at Creative Growth since 2012

Latefa Noorzai, a native Farsi speaker and immigrant to the United States, quickly established her studio practice at Creative Growth despite obstacles of communication and cultural navigation. Latefa's tenacity is demonstrated in her bold portrait paintings inspired by a plethora of source material. Her strong and stark outlines, rendered with immediacy, provide loose structure for the heavy and confident brush strokes that permeate her figures with dynamic expression and presence. A master of color, Latefa paints figures that are, like herself, bright, mercurial, and undaunted by the gaze of others. Latefa's work is included in Hannah Rieger's permanent Art Brut Collection and was nominated for Outsider Art Fair's Art Absolument Award in 2019.
