From: Dhaka, Bangladesh
HOW: Entered work to the Art of Protest project

Rezwana has an MA in Art and Design (Textiles) from the University of Wolverhampton. Her work is about telling stories; capturing a moment or recollecting-representation of some memories than aesthetic. Her textile pieces represent a person’s life, often her own, drawing on culture and tradition; stories that heal or simply convey messages.

This is great. Dissent is naturally creative. It goes against the natural order.-Mark Thomas, speaking at the NOISE Art of Protest exhibition launch

She gave a personal speech about her included artwork, a hand stitched quilt entitled ‘The Rise’. Rezwana thanked NOISE for giving her a platform to protest about the domestic abuse and women’s issues she feels so strongly about.
