Rezia Wahid is an award winning Bangladeshi-born contemporary British artist and weaver. Her signature works are gossamer-light hand-woven textiles evoking qualities of light, air, peace and tranquillity. Rezia’s inspirations are diverse, deriving from Islamic spirituality, her Bangladeshi and English backgrounds, literature, Japanese kasuri technique and Bangladeshi Jamdani technique, all of which combine to produce a multicultural and multidisciplinary dialogue blending into a unique and breathtakingly original voice.  Rezia’s work has been collected by Rhode Island Museum and Tate Edit.

“Rezia Wahid’s hybrid identity informs her work, making tangible familial influences from Bangladesh, intermingling traditions and inspirations from west and east, channelling Islam’s patterns and intensities.”
- Catherine Harper
