I’m Leyla and I’m an illustrator, researcher & curator living and working in London.

My practice concerns the intersection between visual representations and socio-political change - particularly in the case of the British black arts movement.

I am currently art director at the award-winning online magazine gal-dem (run voluntarily by women and non-binary people of colour) and have worked with clients such as Adidas, Greater London Assembly and V&A.

My drawings have been featured in print and online, in Crack Magazine, Dezeen, BBC Three online and Dazed.

Last year my work was exhibited, alongside five other artists, for seven nights by V&A as part of their REVEAL festival.
