LUMA R. BRIEUC - LUMANESSENCE.COM
LUMA R. BRIEUC (Lumanessence) is a self-taught multidisciplinary artist who has been specializing in henna body art and photography since the year 2000. She was born in Germany from a French mother and Cameroonian father and has been living in Montreal (Canada) for most of her life. Countless hours of experimentation, practice and research on the history and traditions of this ancient art of body adornment has enabled the artist to develop her own original style and take the art of traditional henna out of its beaten path. Her henna art and photography is a way for the artist to explore how opposites — such as an ancient / modern, feminine / masculine, ephemeral henna / perpetual photography -- can be brought together to form a harmonious image in spite of the very strong contrasting quality of each polarity.
Luma owns and runs Lumanessence, a henna body art and photography service. More of her beautiful artwork can be viewed on her website above.
