A new public art display has been launched in Notting Hill, celebrating the work of artist Khadija Saye, 24, who died in the Grenfell Tower fire.

Her friend, Tottenham Labour MP David Lammy, remembered the “tender, beautiful and creative soul” whose work “reflects that deep sensibility that was part of her personality”.

The Khadija Saye IntoArts Programme, founded in her memory, aims to “address the lack of diversity in the UK arts sector” by giving opportunities to youngsters from deprived and ethnic minority backgrounds.

This exhibition reminds us of the dignity and humanity with which we remember those who lost their lives.

Nine large prints of the artist’s most celebrated works have been installed on the facade of 236 Westbourne Grove in Notting Hill, about a mile from Grenfell Tower.
