Biography

Karimah Hassan

Born in Wales with Yemeni and Bangladeshi heritage, Hassan has an expressive, bold aesthetic and is heralded for ‘taking stories full circle, from the canvas to the streets’ as an influential street artist. The pivotal aspect of Hassan’s practice involves hosting ‘community showcase teasers’ under the disguise of an exhibition. In a curated line up, Hassan exhibited her paintings alongside poetry readings, open-mic sessions, live jazz and even football matches. In this way, Hassan combines the artwork, the painting subject, and community members together in one space. 

Hassan creates live paintings at performance events across London in order to highlight the importance of communities in the city. Recent commissions include public murals for Toronto Arts Council, painted commission with Crxss Platfxrms Street Festival and an upcoming collaboration with Nike.
