Rabiya Choudhry is a visual artist whose work explores the themes of identity and cultural displacement in contemporary British society with a darkly comedic approach.
Her work expresses the complicated coupling of eastern and western cultures in richly vibrant portrayals of the different autobiographical factors present in her own life. She makes paintings; from large scale canvases, miniatures to murals, small painted sculptures to fabric works.
Rabiya was born in Glasgow 1982 and described by the Scotsman newspaper as, ‘one of the wildest and most distinctive artists to come out of a Scottish art school in many years.’ She has exhibited both nationally and internationally with selected exhibitions including, COCO!NUTS! at Transmission Gallery (2018), Standard Bearers at Edinburgh Art Festival (2018), Signs Of The Times at Tramway (2017) and DCA Thomson at Dundee Contemporary Arts (2016).
