Amanda Ba is a painter who lives and works between New York City and London. She was born in Columbus, Ohio, but spent the first five years of her life with her grandparents in Hefei, China. Diasporic heritage is central to her work—vivid paintings that combine personal memory with psychosexual fantasy are populated with figures that challenge a predominantly white Western canon of figurative painting. Her work is also born out of her interest in critical race and queer theory, which help to situate her identity within more nuanced frameworks of hybridity, otherness, and Chineseness.
