Fiona Quadri is a graphic and illustrative image-maker and workshop facilitator. Within her work, Quadri explores themes of Displacement, Community and Race through the lens of the QUEER BIPOC communities, aiming to break stereotypical viewpoints. She currently pursues postgraduate studies looking at postcolonialism, and decentralising Eurocentric epistemes.
