Umber

“Every sensation in my body, including pain, is a part of the experience that shapes what I do.”

Umber Ghauri is a professional makeup artist, and she mainly works with people of colour and the LGBTQ community. Her interest in gender, sexuality, race and image all stem from studying and writing about art during her art history course.

Umber explores how labels come together to form our identity, and how we choose labels for ourselves. Umber also talks about what it means to be disabled, and how many may not identify as being disabled, as it does not necessarily match up with what they believe a disability to be.
