Sarah Al Mehair

Sarah Almehairi (born 1998), is an Emirati artist from Abu Dhabi, UAE where she lives and works. She earned a BA from New York University Abu Dhabi in 2019, in Art and Art History and a minor in Interactive Media.

Her work fluctuates between image and poetry, narrative and abstract, often in a range of materials, including wood, paper and fabric.

Almehairi is interested in how her works create a visual poetry, engaging with form, materiality, and color; piecing together an innovative language, asserting structure to her investigation.

She has participated in various group exhibitions, including the 2019 Youth Takeover group show at Jameel Arts Centre, Tashkeel’s 2019 group exhibition “PLAY”, the Culture Summit Abu Dhabi 2018, and the 35th Annual Emirates Fine Art Society Exhibition in 2018 at the Sharjah Art Museum. She has also had solo exhibitions at NYUAD’s Project Space and Carbon 12 Gallery in Alserkal Avenue, Dubai.
