An Artistic Preview – Nabeena Mali – Crosshatch Market – Wednesday 22nd May

Nabeena Mali is a Nottingham based artist specialising in creating intricate lino prints and bold ink illustrations. She’s one of those lucky creatives that is basically a complete genius and can turn her hand to anything. She possesses wonderful drawing abilities, she can work wonders with a camera, she’s a musician and has what people often term as ‘an eye’ for art. In fact, she’s got two, making her work that bit more special. In case you haven’t noticed, we’ve a bit of a thing for Nabeena’s work and are looking forward to having her showcase with us in a week or so.


For a unique take on all things nice, pop along to the CrossHatch Pop Up Market, taking place on Wednesday the 22nd May @ The Lace Market Gallery, Stoney Street, Hockley.

10am – 4pm – Pop along on your lunch break! No weekday excuses accepted!
