Anya Paintsil

Anya Paintsil is a Welsh Ghanaian artist working mainly in textiles. She combines her own hair, synthetic braids and yarns in her pieces, to represent complex debates around race, gender and identity through the very fabric of her work.  Her two rugs ‘I am the predator, not the prey’ I and II, are powerful self-portraits. Tullie House has recently acquired both pieces with support of the Contemporary Art Society and they are now on display for the first time in Old Tullie House alongside other textile items from the collection.
