As a collage illustrator, Najeebah explores mixed media in a range of art-series. “A White Asylum” explores the human psyche utilizing photography, shadow-play, and industrial objects. In October 2014, a 50-piece installation featuring collages from A White Asylum was exhibited at the Contemporary Art Platform in Kuwait with several pieces sold. One piece from the collection was also on exhibit at the Art-Expo New York in 2015. “Songes” is a second collage series that interplays between body and redaction through ink. Several pieces are for sale at potatomike.com. Najeebah also has a collection of collage-explorations with paper, string, and animation, that include a slow but wistful introduction of color.
