Manal Al Dowayan is a conceptual artist at the forefront of the global contemporary art scene. She was born and raised in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia. Al Dowayan's life has left her almost uniquely qualified to examine societal issues through the means of her art. Born in Saudi, she was educated in Dubai, Bahrain and London, allowing her to gain an international perspective on the position of women within different areas of the world. Her creative oeuvre to date has focused particularly on the position of women within society and her distinctive and powerful artistic language has been recognised and honoured internationally thorugh the inclusion of her works at the British Museum, London, The Jordan National Museum of Fine Arts and the Abu Dhabi Authority of Culture and Heritage.
"My ambition as an artist? To create something that lasts beyond me. Not in the sense of being famous, but in the sense of allowing my thoughts and feelings to persist. Each photograph I take is like a part of my soul, and I'd like that to outlive me." Manal Al Dowayan, 2012

Footnotes

One of the leading lights of the contemporary art scene in Saudi Arabia, Manal al Dowayan's work has been exhibited worldwide, in the wake of the artist's global activities, promoting the rights of women in the region and celebrating their achievements and pioneering spirit in a complex society.

In this series, al Dowayan presents striking monochromatic portraits of women in Saudi, gazing coolly at the viewer and announcing themselves as modern, aspirational figures seeking to redefine the boundaries of tradition and custom.

Beautifully-composed, emanating conviction, passion and positivity, Al Dowayan's commitment to celebrating the achievements of fellow Saudis and destroying clichés and stereotypes makes her one of the most exciting and vital artists working in the region today.
