Amina Ahmed was born in East Africa, of Kutchi-Indian Turkiq (Uzbek) heritage, grew up in England and has lived in Iran and the US. She specialized in Islamic and Traditional Arts at The Royal College of Art. Physically and spiritually, her drawings are grounded in the practice of geometry, continually referencing ‘geometry in nature’. Ahmed explores the relationships between line and form, shadow and substance, the visible and hidden. As an educator, her projects are informed by human rights, coalition building and folk art. Selected exhibitions include The Show Room in London, Frieze NYC with Jhaveri Contemporary, at Heidelberger Kunstverein Germany.
