About the Artist - Runu Simpson
Hi, I am Runu from Bangladesh. Over the years, I have lived in India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran, communist East Germany, and Britain. My art is inspired by this kaleidoscope of cultures, colours, creatures, culinary creations and people along the way.
It was only after coming here to NZ, that I felt truly at home enough to express these memories through my freestyle henna tattoos, and jewellery ranges… all of my pieces are personally designed and handcrafted as one-off pieces with a unique viewpoint representing a part of my life journey and assimilating the independence and “can do” attitude of the Kiwi spirit.
