Aliza Nisenbaum will present the second commission in a new series at Brixton station that uses the Brixton murals from the 1980s as inspiration.

About

Influenced by the Mexican mural movement and its depiction of social history, Mexico City-born Nisenbaum is best known for her exquisitely painted portraits of underrepresented communities. Often lushly decorated with patterned textiles, her canvases ask for a close look in keeping with her personal connections to her subjects. For her, the process of painting portraits is a reciprocal act, one that sets up an ethical encounter in which participants give their attention and trust, creating works which challenge the hierarchies of portraiture. She will be in residency at Brixton station for two months painting TfL station staff.
