Shamsa Al Omaira Biography

Her work has been exhibited in numerous exhibitions in the UAE, such as"The Nishan" exhibition at the Bastakiya Art Fair in Dubai and UAE inspiration exhibition at the Art Hub, Abu Dhabi.

She was also chosen as one of Emirati artists to be published in Art of the Emirates, a book soon to be launched in the UAE.

Artist Statement:

“I have always been inspired by the details in everything around me. Beginning from a single thread in a textile, to the shakiness in a person’s tone, to the history behind certain objects. What I find fascinating in anything I come across is the emotions and ideas that lead to its existence. In my case, I honestly believe that art without a thought or a strong idea behind it is just a beautiful object that could be marketed or sold on a shelf. What pushes me into creating is not only the thrill of beautifying objects or creating a visual work for people to admire, I put all my emotions, and fears into creating these objects. To me the process of creating may be the most emotional period of time I go through, because before reaching the final outcome, I go through rollercoasters of emotions, confessions, and tough decisions to make. To build an object inspired by a thought, an idea, or a form, provoked by emotions, and holding a strong message, is in my belief the sturdiest and greatest method of creation.”
