ABOUT UMA HAIME
My identity is floating between cultural influences, linguistic misunderstandings, exotic textures, oriental mysticism, and childish curiosity. I was born in the south of Italy, I lived in different European cities and now I am based in Prague. In each country, you become stranger to yourself and somehow you rediscover your identity. So, the continuous habitat changes taught me that uncomfortable and new positions are always interesting.
