Born in London and raised primarily in Paris, Hoda Tawakol is a Franco-Egyptian artist who currently lives and works in Hamburg, Germany. 
Tawakol’s broad practice encompasses hand-dyed and sewn textile pieces, mixed media sculptures, fabric collages and installations in addition to works on paper. Her approach to contemporary textile art is deeply rooted in the feminist movement of the 1970s. Her work attempts to deconstruct symbols and archetypes that obstruct female agency.

Hoda Tawakol has been exhibited in numerous institutions and galleries in Germany and elsewhere such as Sfeir-Semler gallery in Beirut, Beton Art Space in Copenhagen and at the 10th Velada Santa Lucia contemporary art festival in Venezuela. Her work appears in the following collections: The Salama bint Hamdan Al Nahyan Foundation (SHF), Abu Dhabi; The Progressive Art Collection, USA; Huma Kabakci Collection, Turkey, UK; Sammlung Haus N, Germany; SØR Rusche, Germany, amongst others.
