I am a visual artist working across various media including; photography, painting, sculpture, poetry and installation. My own experience as an immigrant to the UK has allowed me to develop an informed and empathetic approach towards those that I depict. I work consistently to platform the experiences and stories of those communities who have been systematically marginalised. I am member of Steering Group CVAN EM. As a British/Bangladeshi, I particularly understands how important it is to improve long-term support for artists and arts workers from backgrounds currently under-represented in the arts. I would like to share my knowledge and experience with other artists and growing art organisations coming from the Global Majority to develop their creative practice.
