Layla Zubi (b. 1991) is a visual artist from St. Louis, Missouri.

 

In her recent and continuous body of work Zubi is producing, her concepts focus on assembling traditional patterns from wearables and fabric. These printed sources are the Uzbek ikat and the Palestinian keffiyeh. Both specifically concentrate on her Palestinian and Uzbek cutural background of her personal experience and what it means growing up as a minority and a first generation American. What started out as applying both patterns in motifs of an entity, Zubi has created dynamic compositions by taking apart the bits and pieces from their original source in celebrating its rich uniqueness and forming narratives by merging biological tools through an abstracted aesthetic point-of-view.
