Amna Al Dabbagh

Amna Al Dabbagh is a researcher, graphic designer and an artist from Dubai. She carries a BFA in Visual Communications and a minor in Architecture from the American University in Dubai.

Her art practice includes installations that carry themes of the UAE and the Arab culture and traditions. She finds her inspiration in literature, language, meteorology and astronomy. As her work is mostly research-based, her energy stems from her curiosity and she finds her escape in searching for information.

She exhibited her work in DUCTAC, Sikka Art Fair, Emirates Palace, Me Collectors Room in Berlin and the Wind Festival in Germany. She was also an artist-in-residence in Yarat Contemporary Art Centre, Baku, Azerbaijan where she spent six weeks of research and preparing for her first solo and international exhibition.

She was the first runner-up in the ADMAF - Gulf Capital Creativity Award in 2015.
