Barbara Nahmad was born in 1967 in Milan, where she lives and works. She is currently University Professor at Accademia di Belle Arte di Brera.

His works are present in public and private collections including the Agnelli Collection, the Einaudi Foundation and the Foundation Rosselli in Turin, the Mediobanca Collection and the Schwarz Collection in Milan, of the Jewish Museum of Bologna and the American College of Greece in Athens.

In 1990 she graduated from the Brera Academy of Fine Arts. After a few stays abroad, he worked for television and for the theater as a set designer, to then dedicate himself totally to painting. From that moment his works have been exhibited in various Italian museums, including the PAC, the Palazzo della Ragione and the Palazzo Reale in Milan and the Jewish Museum of Bologna and, abroad, in various locations in London, Berlin, New York, Shanghai, Athens, The Hague and Tel Aviv. In 2009, as part of the 53rd Venice Biennale, he participated in the «Détournements Venise» project with a pictorial triptych on the economy and a sound installation. In 2014 he exhibited in Tel Aviv the series "Eden", which after several stages was presented at the Jewish Museum of Bologna on the occasion of the European Museum Night. The long cycle of "Eden" represents a turning point in Barbara Nahmad's journey: his painting becomes more essential in these paintings, acquiring sandy tones like those of the desert, rather than with its empty ones expanse offers an original space to resurface the memory of a people. The technique of oil on canvas thus returns to speak with a new voice and history itself regains an energy that concerns and invests the present. In 2017 Barbara Nahmad created the image for Mediobanca's "Passo Doppio" advertising campaign.
