Art Gallery Opening & Reception
Muna is engaged in a broad spectrum of activities related to creating and demonstrating art- from composing lyrics & melodies brought to life by her background as a vocalist and lyricist, to listening to jazz and picking up a paint brush. Each stroke is inspired by the art of living, nature and love. She explores as she creates, projecting her travels across the globe and throughout the arts onto canvas, and still leaving much to the imagination of the audience.
Hair Sculpture by:
She began painting and drawing at the age of 4 and was highly influenced by Edward Gorey as a child. Her work was sold as commissioned work until her mid-teens. At this time she began focusing on photography and performance art.
She studied black and white photography and darkroom techniques at the Ringling School of Art and Design. She spent time in Greece photographing architecture and various protests by day and developing the photos by night. It was during this project that she developed and studied two major influences on her later work. Namely, design and the figure.
This performance work led her to develop a unique hairstyling technique since dubbed Hair Sculpture. Her hair sculpture work has been featured in art shows in Brooklyn, New York. It was also featured in Sandee Pawans show Fashionista in Paris, France at the Institut Franqais dAlger; and in the music video for Creature in Me by international pop singer Aleksander of Splendid Sounds.
