We are delighted to announce our latest exhibition, “Terra Ephemera”, featuring the outstanding new work from Mariam Abbas.

Mariam Abbas is an Emirati illustrator, designer, and visual artist deeply influenced by architecture, botany, and the rich cultural backdrop that surrounds her. She believes that architectural wonders narrate tales of the past, whilst botanical gems convey cultural and historical significance—a viewpoint that profoundly resonates with the artist.

Her artistic expression manifests through intricate illustrations, contemporary paintings, and captivating sculptures. She predominantly utilises acrylics and pen & ink techniques, illuminating her profound creative journey.

In the realm of art, Mariam's unique perspective stands out, earning acclaim across various platforms. She has the distinction of being the first Emirati artist to be featured on Instagram's official account. Her work has garnered global recognition through publications such as Harper's Bazaar, The National, and Gestalten.

We cordially invite you to attend the Exclusive Exhibition Launch on Thursday, 28th September from 6pm-9pm, where you will have the opportunity to meet the artist in person.
