Karma Bint Abbas (b. 2002, Amman) is a Jordanian artist. She attends Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York. Karma also has Turkish and Palestinian roots, an eclectic background which influenced her style of art. Mixed media, vibrant colors, texture, patterns, prints, and interesting contrasts are present in her work which is inspired by her mixed background, Islamic faith, and the Middle East. Karma combines painting and drawing along with textiles to create work about the idea of home and one’s longing for it. Textiles and patterns are recurring in her work and connect culture with interior spaces and the way we use them. Her work fills the viewer with a sense of peace and tranquility, color is important and is used to create happy and peaceful moods. Purples, pinks, and blues are the main colors that provide the sense of calmness she wants to portray in the subject matter. A mainly pastel color pallet creates scenes of Middle Eastern interior spaces, skylines and more fill the viewer with a sense of peace and invites them to challenge the misconceptions they may have on Islam. Combining the mediums of acrylic, watercolour, oil pastels on canvas, she uses these materials to experiment and expand with the limitations of traditional watercolour. Colour is light and light gives life to different personalities.
