2018/2019 Artist: Nikila Badua

Nikila is also known as MamaWisdom. Born on the island of Oahu, Hawaii, Nikila is a self-taught multimedia artist, designer, and performer inspired by an earth-based wisdom of Roots and Culture. Mother and community organizer, her work as an advocate for youth, indigenous, environmental, and women's rights has played an influential role within shaping the foundation of her creative path. Weaving underlying stories, traditions, and elements of the sacred indigenous with modern influences of the urban underground, her art is dedicated to honoring the maternal personifications of Life; thus birthing the alias "MamaWisdom".
