Rehana is a textile artist.
Rehana’s practice explores Black identity and questions society’s ideologies around Black beauty. Working with imagery, symbolism, motifs and artefacts that connect to Black history, Rehana unpicks and interrogates representations of Black beauty by placing her work within the context of the contemporary fashion industry. Focussing on colour, pattern and texture, she combines human and animal forms within textured print, mark-making and illustrative compositions. Her pieces celebrate Black beauty and foreground the physical and emotional strength of the Black community.
