Odeta Xheka

Artist Bio

As a woman, fated to be narrated rather than be the narrator, Odeta Xheka makes art to claim her voice because art is the opposite of speechlessness. Her paintings, collages, and digital art projects have been juried into national and international competitions. Her artwork is also featured in various art magazines and literary journals. Born in Berat, Albania, currently she lives in Tampa, Florida after 4 years spent studying art in Athens, Greece, and another 16 years in Brooklyn, New York.
