Khadija Dikko, a textile designer, immerses herself in the realms of colour, identity and culture by drawing inspiration from her personal history and experiences. Having completed her BA at Falmouth University, specializing in woven textiles, she explored her cultural heritage through intricate weaving structures on the loom, deepening her understanding of how her own identity intersects with her cultural roots.
Since embarking on her journey at the Royal College of Art, Khadija has further developed her artistic practice, fuelled by her unique encounters and personal history. Her current focus lies in examining the concept of home for herself as someone who grew up in diverse locations and is accustomed to frequent relocations that she has experienced since she was a year old.
These explorations serve as the primary motivation behind her creative endeavours as she delves into the significance of numerous transitions, spanning various states within Nigeria, different countries like Nigeria and England, and even encompassing counties such as North Yorkshire, Cornwall and Greater London.
