Overview

The women of Hurumzi Henna Art Gallery transform traditional henna body arts into paintings and prints . Using a centuries old tradition of adorning women's hands and feet for celebrations such as weddings and festivals, the artists translate the patterns of the body art onto canvas creating a new and soon to be iconic art style through their elaborate paintings.
