Mohamed ( Mwana) during painting her NALA Artwork at the Hurumzi Henna Art Gallery in Stone Town,
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.
What began as a workshop for 10 women henna artists in 2007 became a thriving women’s cooperative engendering an entirely new style of painting. The results are vibrant and exciting designs characterized by swirling forms and bold floral motifs surrounded by repeating background patterns.
This style is uniquely their own; it does not resemble other East African painting styles and represents the exciting creation of what is clearly a Zanzibari invention.Within the larger style each woman has her own unique way of working with motif, color and pattern.
The Hurumzi Henna Art Gallery is changing women’s lives, producing a new artistic style and beneficial means of income that has improved their way of life. On most days, you may visit the women painting and printmaking in their art studio above the gallery at 242 Hurumzi Street, Stone Town, Zanzibar
