Nola hatterman got in touch with progressive Surinamese in the Netherlands, such as Anton de Kom. In 1953 she settled in Suriname to teach the new generation of Surinamese artists. Hatterman's work focuses on the identieit of Suriname and the Surinamese. She saw art as a weapon in the fight against discrimination and colonialism. The Nola Hatterman Institute founded, later renamed to The Nola Hatterman Art Academy.


As an artist, Nola Hatterman embodies the shared (post)colonial heritage of Suriname and the Netherlands and forms the pivot between Surinamese and Dutch art history.


Her works were recently purchased by the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam and included in the permanent collection of the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.
