Habiba Nabisubi is a British-Ugandan multimedia artist based in South London. Having lived in both Kampala, Uganda as well as the UK, Habiba draws huge inspiration when creating new work from both sides of her heritage and lived experience. Everything she creatively sets her mind to is a labour of love.
In 2016, Habiba graduated from Camberwell College of the Arts with a BA (Hons) Illustration and has gone on to make work that she feels is relevant, usually rooted within topics that are bigger than herself with the hope that they evoke emotion. Habiba would describe her illustrations as highly detailed, inclusive, conversation starters and an opportunity for learning – often by using subtle elements of humour or some sort of social commentary. She thoroughly enjoys the process of creating characters, conjuring up refreshing narratives and trusting her imagination to execute her vision powerfully.
Habiba is now represented by Lorna Hemingway at Bell Lomax Moreton and is working on her debut picture book. Watch this space…
