Haneefah Adam, a Nigerian visual Artist is making good use of food leftovers in creative ways. She makes portraits and other works of art with them.
Adam, a master degree holder, first got the attention of the world in 2015. She transformed Barbie into Hijarbie – a hijab-wearing Muslim doll.
While speaking to CNN, she said: “I have always been artistic. Growing up, my mother said I had a flair for art.”
“I do regular portraits, I sew and paint, but what excites me the most is food,”
According to the medical scientist, life experiences and culture inspire her. She believes everything around her as something that can be made into art.
Adams was crowned the winner of #TechMeetsArtNG exhibition, sponsored by Samsung Nigeria and Rele Gallery in 2016
The competition was a culinary exhibition aimed at exploring the artistic presentation of some of Nigeria’s local meals.
She says the art represents an African woman adorned in vibrant colors.
