Emirati artist Mona al-Khaja has participated in international art exhibitions to showcase her interpretations of fine art.
Al-Khaja insists that by using a bundle of tools, she can augment layer upon layer of meaning.
Never content to employ just one technique, the UAE artist uses number of handy ingredients such as brushes, rollers and razors.
“I have pursued different techniques of painting, but with accumulation of experience, I have found my own niche in abstractionism.
“I have lived very close to the sea and imbibed the delight of its blue waves, the sands hugging and the sun rays shining brightly. I was inspired by the stunning combination of colors of the sea, the sun, the sky and sand,” says al-Khaja.
The fine artist has exhibited her art globally, in countries and cities which include, Sharjah, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Kuwait, Oman, Cairo, Jordan, Morocco, Bahrain, India, Germany, Japan, France, Spain and Saudi Arabia.
Al-Khaja studied fine art in Egypt and has been painting since she was a child. She was highly motivated by her art teacher, who used to display artwork on the school signboard. Mona’s father inspired her to persevere, and provided her with all the tools and material she needed to become an artist.
“At the age of 13, I became a member of Women’s Association, and created a painting bought by a leading woman dignitary of the UAE.
