Rayan Elnayal is a Sudanese artist/designer based in London. Using her architecture background, she visualizes and speculates on fictional spaces. She is interested in how magic realist techniques can aid in the production of ethnocentric futurisms and sci-fi in Sudan, the SWANA region and its diaspora. Her interest in magic realism developed from the completion of her architecture thesis project at the University of Greenwich.
Since graduating Elnayal's work has been featured in several publications and two solo exhibitions in Central London.
Rayan has also acted as a guest critic and guest speaker on topics relevant to architectural design, digital art, and diversity.
