Khasnaa Juma is a first-generation Kenyan American artist from Anaheim, California. Working from the tradition of painting, she combines sculpture, spray paint, acrylic and upcycled fabric to create photographs printed on aluminum. Juma’s work critiques the adverse effects the fashion industry has on the environment and offers an alternative to mainstream design and fashion – a contemporary space where Black Muslim women undermine White Supremacy.
Juma’s work received first place at the 2020 Student Research Day and was included in OurPlace a national 2020 voting campaign. She was an intern at Slanguage, is a member of the DH Arts Collective and founded FlowNoirStudios in 2019. Juma will receive her B.A. in Studio Art from California State Dominguez Hills in 2021.
