Nadera Adil

is an Uzbek-Australian born artist, daughter of Soviet-trained portraiture artist, Iroda Adil.

Nadera grew up nestled between the Adelaide wine region and stunning Fleurieu Peninsula, where she studied her Bachelors in Environmental Engineering and Health Sciences.

It is her diverse background that has developed her keen eye for form and texture.

Her works explore the connection between the female form and societal ‘beauty’. Nadera’s work draws upon the contrast between insecurities, perceived perceptions of beauty and mental health through the play of gritty textures, free flowing strokes and abstraction.
