b chehayeb (b. 1990, Dallas, TX) makes paintings, prints, and drawings that focus on the reconstruction of failed memories and sensory experiences warped and informed by nostalgia, gender, language, and cultural hybridity. Semi-abstract fields of luscious texture, gesture, color, and ambiance are perforated with chehayeb’s growing lexicon of symbols - cowboy boots, stars, horses, snakes, ladders, furniture, and the letter ñ - as anecdotes, spaces, and emotions emerge from the paint.

b chehayeb received her MFA from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design in 2020 and her BFA in painting with studies in creative writing from the University of North Texas in 2013.
