Nichole Washington

Nichole Washington is a visual artist who creates mixed media artworks exploring feminine strength, spirituality and identity. In 2016 she graduated from School of Visual Arts where she earned a masters degree in digital photography. Since earning her degree her work has been exhibited in galleries and institutions across the United States including the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History. In 2017 she was one of ten recipients of the Enfoco Photography Fellowship. Washington’s work is featured in the inaugural issue of “MFON: Women Photographers of the African Diaspora” and has been featured in several benefit auctions including The Heliotrope Foundation, Groundswell and Art4Equality.

Nichole Washington pushes the boundaries of her identity by creating portraits that are bold, non-conforming and liberated. She uses manipulated photographs and bold paint strokes to figuratively and literally break out of “the box” of normative behavior. Through this process she creates super heroine characters that exist in an imagined space meant for healing and transformation. 

The Untitled Space debuted her work in a solo show, "Rebellious Black Girl" in February 2020. She has additionally been featured in a number of The Untitled Space group shows including "BODY BEAUTIFUL", "IRL: Investigating Reality", "ONE YEAR OF RESISTANCE", and "SHE INSPIRES".
