About the speaker

“As a British-born Sudanese artist living in the U.S., I describe myself as an African brush-teller—like a storyteller, but with a brush. Although I want to be able to inspire millions, the best contribution I can offer to the world is to be myself wholeheartedly with every brushstroke.

When I lay paint on my canvas, I choose to dwell in a place no one can see or imagine. If I could tell stories with words there would be no reason for me to paint. I have never been much of a writer; however, the power of color and expressive brushstrokes depict every visual and emotional memory I want to tell. As Rumi said, “When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you.”

Huda Hashim is a British born, Sudanese-American designer, contemporary artist and 3D architect paving her way in the international world. Owner of Manzili 3D, a creative design studio focused on storytelling though art and architecture.
