Zarah Hussain is an MA graduate of the Visual Islamic and Traditional Art programme at the Prince’s School For Traditional Arts in London. She has spent many years perfecting the traditional techniques used to create mathematical geometric Art and adapting them to create works with a contemporary resonance. She has had several solo exhibitions across the UK, and her work is held in many museum collections.
Most recently, her practice has developed to include three-dimensional sculptures, currently displayed for the first time at Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery in the exhibition ‘Symmetry in Sculpture: Recent Work by Zarah Hussain’.
