My first artist discovery on here so be nice 😂
Today I'd like to introduce Issi Nanabeyin, a London based multi-disciplinary artist whose aim is to 'build diasporic identities into visual forms'. Funnily enough I actually studied with him at architecture school, so have been following him for some time and fortunate enough to watch him go from strength to strength. Personally, not only do I love his work, but also the narratives he strives to explore in his wider practice.
This week, The Samuel Ross Black British Artist Grant Programme announced him as one of this year's winners, so potentially some exciting times ahead for Issi and those that admire his work.
