Collect Artwork by Artist Linda Friedman Schmidt

Linda Friedman Schmidt is a self-taught artist known for her emotional narrative portraits created from discarded clothing. She was born stateless in a German displaced persons camp, the first child of Holocaust survivors. Her family history has fueled a passion and advocacy for reform and for making the world a better place for all, not just for some. In artwork that fuses personal history with current issues, she shines a light on religious intolerance, racism, ethnic cleansing, violence, and the pain and suffering caused by displacement and war. She is unafraid to tell the unvarnished truth, confront her family’s dark history, and address taboo and controversial issues. Recent exhibitions include "Art4Equality x Life, Liberty & The Pursuit of Happiness", "ONE YEAR OF RESISTANCE", "SHE INSPIRES" and "UPRISE/ANGRY WOMEN" exhibitions at The Untitled Space and as well as SPRING/BREAK Art Show.
