Me

 

WHO, WHAT, WHERE AND WHY

Hiya, I find writing about myself very tricky so in an attempt to give this a little structure I am going to answer the following and perhaps you'll get to know a little about me in the process....

WHO AM I?

My name is Hanna Benihoud and at the time of writing this I am 30 years old. I am a born and bred North Londoner and wherever I am in the world London flows in my blood.

WHAT DO I DO?

I am an Architect and an Artist.

I qualified as an architect in September 2014 after 7 years of studying. After graduating I practiced for 5 years in East London, UK working on a variety of housing and commercial projects. 

I began my art practice in 2014 . I work in mixed media creating one off pieces and large scale installations. The trickier the project the better! My work is represented by Curious Duke Gallery in London, UK. 

WHERE AM I?

I am currently living in Vancouver, Canada. This time away from home has given me a fresh perspective on my career and I have decided to dedicate this time to my art practice. 

WHY AM I DOING THIS?

I am passionate abotu the things I believe in and I am addicted to challenging myself which dictates my decision making the majority of the time. Whether it be working with contractors on site or having my first boxing fight I am committed to working as hard as I can, which can be summarized in a greys anatomy quote:

What’s that saying... Why do I keep hitting myself with a hammer? Because it feels so good when I stop.
— Meredith Grey - Greys Anatomy

That's me in a nutshell!
