Digital Diasporas with Sara Erenthal
Sara Erenthal is a Brooklyn-based, self-taught, multi-disciplinary artist whose work focuses on themes of displacement, survival, and liberation. Sara has been incredibly active throughout the pandemic in creating impactful street-art on discarded objects, sending out relatable messages of hope and positivity to her local community and her followers abroad.
About Digital Diasporas
Much as a diaspora describes the dispersal of a people across space, this series explores the new movements artists are taking away from their practice in the digital world or how they are working in ways that forge new communities and connections despite geographic distance. In short, it’s a series about being apart, together.
Join us each month as selected artists take us through their practice prior to the pandemic, their innovations in response to social distancing, and their visions for the future.
About Sara Erenthal
Born into an ultra-Orthodox Jewish family, Sara Erenthal left home at 17 to avoid an arranged marriage and spent the next two decades creating art and traveling the world. She works across painting, sculpture, and performance, often integrating everyday materials into her process. When not in her studio, Erenthal can be found working on the streets, reinventing discarded objects and painting provocative portraits. Within the past few years, Sara’s murals have been featured in a range of local, national, and international street art festivals, including the renowned Montreal Mural Festival. Erenthal’s work has also been presented in solo and group exhibitions in New York City, Montreal and Tel Aviv. Her work has been reviewed and profiled in The New York Times, The Jewish Week, Haaretz, Vice, The Village Voice, CBS New York, Gothamist, The Brooklyn Rail, and Artnet among others.
