Sayma Hossain (B.1992 Dhaka, Bangladesh) is a textile artist who navigates with found objects, quilt making, installations and tapestry weavings. Her practice revolves around repurposing recycled materials through traditional textiles techniques. Growing up at the cultural intersection of Bangladesh and the American South, her work reflects on the relationship of garmentry in society as it relates to fast fashion and the nonlinear journey of the Muslim experience. Currently her work/series is on food waste and weaving together a plastic quilt on what we may consume on a regular basis.
She received her BFA in Studio Arts with a concentration in Textile Design from Ernest G. Welch School of Art and Design at Georgia State University in 2016.
