Karimah is a self-taught painter with a signature bold and expressive aesthetics on her pieces. Adding contemporary touches to Fauvism, she often favours strong and captivating colour combinations on her pieces to paint the nuance of lively spontaneity and intensity. Karimah’s medium for her arts varies vastly, ranging from paper, canvas, to walls -- highlighting her versatility as a painter as she’s able to switch between fine artistry, to street and community arts. Within her paintings fluid and harsh strokes are combined seamlessly and harmonically, reflecting the multi-layered expression of humanness that is often sensed inside communities, and how all the differences made up a whole.
Born in Wales, with a Yemeni and Bangladeshi heritage, Karimah Hassan understood that each community has its own lively colours and eccentricities to delve into. As an artist, Karimah gripped the vision of “taking stories full circle, from the canvas to the streets” with the mission of merging boundaries between worlds. The practice of merging boundaries requires bending and broadening them, which is quite apparent in Karimah’s artistic career practices. She has recently been featured in iD magazine and will receive a solo show at Coal Drops Yard this spring.
