Karimah Hassan is a London based artist, whose paintings translate across spatial mediums - from canvas to the street. Known for her expressive, bold aesthetic, her work highlights cultural identity, and the role of communities in the city. Karimah has exhibited her work internationally, in New York, Kyoto, Toronto and Seoul.

“I believe it’s important to shine a light on the few places in this city where we can come together, without agendas or motives, to just be, create and inspire.”

Karimah is on an on-going mission to document London’s emerging DIY communities. From music venues, to poetry nights and super clubs, Karimah has been working with creative communities across London, painting the people responsible for overcoming the stigma of feeling alone in the big city.
