Pa was born in the Gambia and moved to the UK in 18; he was previously one of our Supported Housing residents. He is an artist who draws on his lived experience of life on the margins as an immigrant; his intricate drawings express a cosmic world rooted in the reality of these experiences.
The last few months have been filled with exciting milestones for Pa; not only did he move out, independently, of our Supported Housing project, but he also was given his first exhibition at the Stephen Lawrence Gallery in Greenwich.
The Spider is the Clock is a shared exhibition between Pa and Umama Hamido, artist and filmmaker.
Our Supported Housing Manager, Paul, went to visit the exhibition and took the below photos.
