the artist

 
 

Nashwa Zakaria, a UAE national, has distinguished herself as one of the most courageous Arab painters of her generation; her work has effectively blurred the boundaries between high art and popular traditions creating over 150 pieces using wood and canvas. Her recent works retain an overall movement scheme, each is complex, witty, packed with thoughtful allusions, and highly visually engaging, inspired by the universal extemporary power and the personification of life and love through the soul. She believes that art is a form of meditation, invigorating your senses and lifting people to unknown heights and spaces. Influenced by the world renowned Lebanese Art Master Wajih Nahle, Nashwa was privileged to work closely with him on numerous workshops in Dubai.

 

Nashwa uses a variety of techniques, which can be seen in the photos above.
