Hamed Maiye

24th November 2019 – 24th February 2020

Hamed Maiye was the first recipient of our our Studio Residency Award.

Maiye documents the multifaceted image of the Afro-Caribbean diaspora’s youth through portraiture whilst exploring ideas around self-representation. One of the key drivers in Maiye’s collaborative practice is the introduction of new personal narratives, creating visibility for those who are often marginalised. Maiye is also a member of Eating At the Same Table (EAST), an artist led collective which prioritises Black and POC art students to engage in non traditional formats of learning.

On the 21st February 2020, Block 336 hosted an open studio event to mark the end of Maiye’s residency.
