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 national collections.

Commissioned by Essex Cultural Diversity Project in 2014, Zarah worked intensively with Muslim communities in Southend-on-Sea. The resulting digital outdoor animation, Southend Colour, was launched in the borough in Spring 2015.
