Alumnus shortlisted for Signature Art Prize

Habib Hajallie and his piece ‘Can I Touch Your Hair?’ have been shortlisted for the Signature Art Prize 2019/20.

The Signature Art Prize aims to promote the work of artists at the beginning of their careers, showcasing students’ and recent graduates’ unique styles and designs.

Habib (Fine Art, 2017) aims to give a sense of empowerment to often marginalised ethnic groups through exploring ethnic identity within his art.

His piece, ‘Can I Touch Your Hair?’, looks at racial prejudice in modern society, featuring texts from the 1940s ‘Sierra Leone studies’ book as the canvas.

The prize winners will be announced in February 2020.

Best of luck, Habib.
