H Bushra Artist Bio:

My personal Astrological chart says that people with my configuration make excellent writers. may be, this is why each and every piece of my art work tells a story. I always know what to say and I can write pages on a particular piece; as it includes my cultural background and influences, Western style of painting as I have studied Fine Art only in that particular Style in my native country, Bangladesh, India, England and here in USA and Spiritual significance as I have been f...ollowed by 11:11 since 2009, to say the least. The numerical digit 4 is significant to me as it is the end number after adding my birth day. I was born on Thursday, which is the fourth day of the week.

The Native American cultures have used the number 4 most frequently as in the four cardinal directions. The four winds are depicted by the symbol of the cross and by the symbol of the cross and by the symbol of tthe swastika. The swastika as some misbelieve, was not created by Hitler.

I use Bangla and English Calligraphy in repetition. Agnes Martin is a huge influence on me. I owe a lot to my professors, family, friends and well-wishers, at home and abroad. I thank everyone from the bottom of my he
