Aqsa Qureshi

b. 1994, United Kingdom

Aqsa is a London based Pakistani fine art printmaking graduate from the University of Brighton. Aqsa’s work is fueled by their lived experience; growing up in western society while being raised within a strict Muslim household. Through making, they explore the barriers between these two cultures. Themes of religion and spirituality are prevalent throughout their work, while the undercurrent is childhood memory. Their mother tragically passed away when Aqsa was a young teenager, and making work is a cathartic way through their past, as well as their present moments of feeling most hopeless. Aqsa creates a visual language, where representations of displacement, isolation and identity can coexist.
