Noiamreiss, Braidology Origins, 2019

Birmingham-based artist Noiamreiss creates eye-catching artworks that “focus largely on Black identity through the prism of Afro hair,” writes Emily Gosling in her recent 5 Questions feature on the artist for Elephant. His ongoing project, Braidology, centres on “Afrofuturistic characters who are exploring their relationships and connections through their hair,” Noiamreiss explains. “I’m interested in the recurring patterns and styles you can do with braiding and the history it carries,” he tells Gosling. “It’s something… I feel needs more representation within art.” Read more about the project and Noiamreiss’ singular practice here.
