Ayesha Green’s painting is characterised by a block colour, flattened image style and she often takes as her subjects historical events or figures and moments from everyday life.
Green graduated with a Bachelor of Media Arts from Wintec in 2009, completed a Master of Fine Arts at the Elam School of Fine Arts in 2013, and in 2016 added a Graduate Diploma in Arts from the University of Auckland.
In 2019, she won the National Contemporary Art Awards, judged that year by Fiona Pardington, for the painting *Nana’s Birthday (A Big Breath)*. In 2020, Green was a recipient of the Springboard Award from the Arts Foundation.
