is what you would call a young emerging artist mainly because she is young, but her experience in creating sound art, music, painting, sculpture and illustration spans 11 years. Training formally in several disciplines – music, dance and visual arts, Alaya has participated in more than 20 group exhibitions and art fairs since the age of 5. Her current art practice revolves around theinterdisciplinary aesthetics of sound/music and visual expressions in sculpture and painting. She perceives art production as a window to have a bigger understanding of the world one artwork at a time. Disciplined, inquisitive and observant, Alaya’s works are filled with elements of popular culture, surrealist images, and a tug-of-war of bright and subdued tones. Alaya plays several music instruments alongside painting; both forms co-exist in her studio work.
