Ahmad George

 “I'm a multidisciplinary artist, but I primarily use painting to explore themes of folklore, mainly from the American South. I also address topics such as family, my gender identity, and how I show up in the world.”

Ahmad George (b.1994 Memphis, TN) is a painter and multimedia artist. Ahmad received a BFA from Memphis College of Art in Design/ Illustration. They’ve shown at NADA Miami as well as national and international group and solo exhibitions.

Ahmad creates visual harmonies in their work by blending imagery and lore of the American south (mostly scenes from Tennessee and Mississippi) with narrative components from different cultures, to connect the enduring themes of humanity. Often, they use people or animals from their life to be the protagonists of these narratives.

Major themes they explore include personal family history, transformation, consequence, and spiritual alchemy.
