Cassi Namoda

Cassi Namoda (b. 1988 Maputo, Mozambique) is a painter and performance artist who explores the intricacies of social dynamics through vivid scenes that intermingle the heartfelt with the absurd, the quotidian with the cosmic, the joyous with the macabre. Born in Maputo to a Mozambican mother and American father, Namoda negotiates the intricacies of mixed cultural heritage in her work, intricacies that reflect the wider cultural dynamics of a formerly colonized nation in an increasingly globalized world.
