The BOUHDY ART collective is a story best described by one word: fusion. We fuse old techniques with modern medi- ums. We infuse traditional shapes, pat- terns, and colors with our own per- sonal touch. We are inspired by our global exposure to beautiful places with rich histories & cultures. Combine the aforementioned with the fusion of our individual personalities, and that is BOUHDY ART.
Our job is to bring something special to life, and we are proud of what we have to present to you. As with any art- ist, we owe much of our inspiration to others. The traditional tile work, rug weaving and ceramics of Berber tribes & artisans from our ancestral home country of Morocco have been a par- ticular source of ideas for us. what we have been inspired to create is truly unique.
