About the Artist:
Rana Begum (born 1977, Sylhet, Bangladesh) studied painting at Chelsea College of Art and Design (1999) and Slade School of Art (2002). She lives and works in London.
Rana Begum’s artworks draw inspiration from the abstract collision of colours, forms and movement in contemporary urban environments. Her sculptural compositions, with repeating geometric patterns in applied colours, explore the reflection of light. They engage with the viewer’s movements, presenting new colour compositions, changing symmetries and forms at each moment of perception.
