#LDNWMN Tate x Mayor of London Commission
The #LDNWMN project features a series of artworks of 20 unsung women of London, made by 20 women and non-binary artists.
Mala Sen. A writer, human rights activist who was also part of the British Black Panther movement, a womens rights campaigner, and someone who played an active part within the Bangladeshi community, creating Brick Lane as a safe space. I had the honour to create artwork celebrating her life and the amazing women that she was.
Staying true to my style, I created a vintage bollywood poster of Sen highlighting her story with mini illustrations surrounding her portrait and words describing her character with Bengali and bold typography. Night Jasmine flowers symbolise blooms in dark times and freedom with butterflies.
My piece was chosen to launch the project, where an unveiling was held at the Truman Brewery, Brick Lane.
