A new exhibition depicting the Black experience in contemporary culture by figurative artist, Linnet Rubaya, is set to open at the Saul Hay Gallery in Manchester.

Rubaya has won high praise for her unique and extraordinary artwork that takes a deeper look at how Black people are represented in modern-day culture – incorporating the use of vibrant colours contrasted against Black figures.

Rubaya was born in Harare in Zimbabwe in 1991 and grew up in London, studied Biomedical Science at University in Brighton and now lives and works in Leeds. She was a recent winner of the prestigious New Light Saul Hay Emerging Artist Award.

Using acrylic paint and drawing from an extensive digital archive across Pinterest, Instagram and a collection of personal photographs, Rubaya creates works that capture moments of intimate engagement and emotions that are distinctively contemporary.
