Get to know one of London’s up-and-coming artists Karimah Hassan. Real-life yet a raw depiction of her community with bold lines and striking colours are what Karimah’s known for. Here are 5 questions.

What do you do to unwind after a long day?

Depends on how long we are talking... if I can, then a dance or walk in with a good soundtrack, if it’s gone past that point then a bath and some candles does the trick!

What food are you looking forward to eating on Ramadan?

Dates! I mean.... I eat them all the time, but they are the first thing I think of when I think of Ramadan. After that, mama's samosas come a good second. 

What do you treasure the most in the current city you live in?

The people, hands down. I love my people here. 

Do you have a life soundtrack?

Yeah, I have this secret playlist on YouTube called ‘heart songs’ that I’ve been adding to for years, it has every song behind every major event in my life.  

What's the best Wi-Fi name you've seen?



You can collect the pieces she's created for PAPER MODE here.
